A committee of teachers is reviewing new books for Hawkins County students, as part of the ongoing process of textbook adoption. The sample reading textbooks are being considered for use in the county’s kindergarten through sixth grade classes.
The books have been reviewed at the state level and placed on the list of state approved textbooks, according to Hawkins County Department of Education officials.
The committee members have sought input from their fellow Hawkins County teachers, and members of the public will also have an opportunity to submit their judgments of the texts. The books will be on public display at the Charles A. Fuller Training Center, located on 1722 East Main St. in Rogersville, on March 4 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Samples of the textbooks from the official state adoption list will be available for the public to view as well. Members of the public can submit comments to the Hawkins Board of Education on March 4, or they can mail comments to the BOE at 200 North Depot St. in Rogersville.
The textbook committee will make its final recommendations to the Hawkins BOE at the April board meeting.
