In Senate Bill 6, the Legislature virtually removed the word In Senate Bill 6, the Legislature virtually removed the word "textbook" from state statutes. In light of these changes, the name of the Mc. Allen ISD Textbooks and Student Records Department has now been changed to Instructional Materials and Student Records

Instructional Materials and Student Records The Instructional Materials and Student Records Department provides the Instructional Materials and Student Records The Instructional Materials and Student Records Department provides the essential instructional material that will support the district’s mission and goals. We are committed in ensuring that our children and teachers receive the instructional material in the most efficient and effective way.

Time for Change Given the changes and limitations in textbook funding, districts are challenged Time for Change Given the changes and limitations in textbook funding, districts are challenged to make the best use of available instructional material funds and place extra emphasis on mitigating textbook losses. • All Instructional Material orders requisitioned in EMAT will be taken from MISD allotment. Supplemental orders that must be processed through the state must first be approved by Instructional Services Department. • One textbook per child is no longer a state requirement. -Class sets, whereby students keep one book in the classroom and one at home, will no longer be allowed. • Order only the quantities needed -Based on student enrollment or whether material will actually be put to use • Campuses will be allowed to retain a surplus of 3% over their enrollment • Consider using digital content that is available.

What can our district purchase using the instructional materials allotment? The Instructional Materials Allotment What can our district purchase using the instructional materials allotment? The Instructional Materials Allotment (IMA) can be used to purchase instructional materials adopted by the State Board of Education or the Commissioner of Education. The IMA can also be used to purchase instructional materials that are not on the adopted lists as well as technology services and technological equipment. Districts should prioritize their selections of instructional materials as they relate to the new STAAR assessment and End of Course.

As of 10/3/2011, the following instructional material has been ordered and has either been As of 10/3/2011, the following instructional material has been ordered and has either been distributed or in the process of bar-coding and sorting for distribution • Scholastic Big Day for Pre. K Texas Program • Texas Mathematics/Matematicas (Consumables – Continuing Adoption) • Handwriting (Grades 1 – 3) • Texas Write Source (English/Spanish Language & Composition, Gr. 2 -5 & 9 -12) • Texas CINCH (Supplemental Science, Grades 5 -12) Digital • Prentice Hall Writing Coach (English Language & Composition, Gr. 6 -8)

For accountability purposes, all textbooks are bar-coded and processed through Hayes TIPWeb, our textbook For accountability purposes, all textbooks are bar-coded and processed through Hayes TIPWeb, our textbook inventory tracking system. The bar-coding system provides a direct link from the textbook to the accession number to the student and/or teacher A Teacher or student receipt can be generated, the receipt reflects the accession #’s, quantities, and value of textbooks issued to them.

With the use of TIPWeb, we are able to verify the total campus textbook With the use of TIPWeb, we are able to verify the total campus textbook inventory, actual textbooks in use, and surplus available (not in use). This allows us to transfer material from campuses with the surplus to campuses experiencing shortages.

More Change Another benefit in using TIPWeb is that it simplifies the Annual Physical More Change Another benefit in using TIPWeb is that it simplifies the Annual Physical Textbook Inventory process. Each year, audits are conducted when material is no longer used for instructional purposes. During these audits, every textbook within our district must be “physically” counted by Instructional Materials staff. For accountability, effectiveness, and time management purposes, centralization has been required. Elementary Campuses no longer have to centralize. By scanning the textbooks to teachers, they no longer have to be removed from the classroom, thus the teacher can have more control and better accountability of textbooks distributed to them. Complete details will be sent as we near the end of school year.

Annual Physical Textbook Inventories The Annual Physical Textbook Inventories are conducted during the months Annual Physical Textbook Inventories The Annual Physical Textbook Inventories are conducted during the months of June/July. The results are compared to the textbook activity generated for that school year such as campus requisitions, textbook returns or transfers, etc. The inventory counts will be used to figure campus losses. Campuses will be given time to locate textbooks that have been identified as lost. (Titles that are not at site to be physically counted will reflect as a loss until cleared) IT IS IMPORTANT TO REPORT OVERAGES AS WELL AS SHORTAGES Overages may indicate a shipping error. If one campus has an overage another campus may have a shortage.
