Instructional Materials Reconsideration Committee
How it works and purpose:
The Instructional Materials Reconsideration Committee is composed of ten members and one Chairperson. The Chair of the Committee is the District’s lead librarian and media specialist. Members are selected in September of each school year, and serve a term from October to May. The current committee is composed of two faculty representatives (one media specialist, and one classroom teacher), four student representatives (one from each high school), and four parent representatives.
The main task of the committee is to make a recommendation to the Superintendent when a citizen makes a written complaint against a library book, classroom material, or other instructional resource. The district policy, regulations and procedures are considered when studying the challenged materials. The committee forwards their decision to the Superintendent who, in turn, makes the final decision. Complaints are considered and acted upon within thirty school days of receipt. The committee typically meets on the second Wednesday of the month at 4:15 p.m. at the ELSC, only if there are items to discuss. All meetings are open to the public.
