BISD Purges Outdated Learning Materials

Beaumont ISD has received new K-12 Social Studies; 9-12 Math; and 6-grade Fine Arts books for the 2015-2016 school year that have already been put to use by students since early fall.   In accordance with Texas Education Agency, (TEA) guidelines (Educational Code Chapter 31 Sections 105), the district has begun the process of eliminating “out of adoption materials”.   


BISD will sell some of the discontinued books as well as donate additional learning materials to Children International, a nonprofit humanitarian organization. To achieve the district's monumental goal of ridding excess textbook inventory, the Board of Managers approved a partnership with Follet Paper Company and BISD to properly dispose of the surplus out of adoption material at no cost to the district.
