5550.1 Inspection of Instructional Material

Parents/Guardians shall have the right to inspect, upon request, any instructional material used as part of the educational curriculum for students. “Instructional material” is defined as instructional content that is provided to a student, regardless of format including printed or representational materials, audio-visual materials, and materials in electronic or digital formats (such as materials accessible through the Internet). It does not include tests or academic assessments.

A parent/guardian who wishes to inspect and review such instructional material shall submit a request in writing to the building principal. Upon receipt of such request, arrangements shall be made to provide access to such material within a reasonable period of time after the request has been received.


          Parents/guardians and eligible students shall be notified of this policy at least annually, at the beginning of the school year, and when enrolling students for the first time in District schools. The School District shall also notify parents/guardians within a reasonable period of time after any substantive change to this policy.
