Welcome to the Textbook Adoption home page. This platform offers comprehensive details regarding the statewide textbook adoption procedure in North Carolina.
"At the heart of North Carolina's educational commitment lies the Textbook Adoption process, a purposeful endeavor designed to empower schools and educators with access to high-quality instructional materials. This comprehensive initiative, guided by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, aims to meticulously evaluate, select, and adopt textbooks that align with the state's educational standards. By fostering a transparent and rigorous adoption process led by the dedicated Textbook Commission, we endeavor to equip schools with the most effective tools that support the goals and objectives of the North Carolina Standard Course of Study. The purpose of Textbook Adoption extends beyond procurement; it is a strategic investment in the educational journey of our students, ensuring they receive relevant, engaging, and standards-aligned resources that contribute to their academic success and lifelong learning."
