Each year, instructional materials for a different content area are reviewed and considered for adoption. Publishers are required to submit bids which identify every student title, teacher edition, free item, and supplementary item that will be made available. Publishers are also required to provide samples of new materials for review by the Oklahoma State Textbook Committee.
The Oklahoma State Textbook Committee is comprised of parents, teachers, and community members who have been appointed by the Governor. The Committee reviews all instructional materials in light of the state content standards.
