Instructional Materials

  • Instructional Materials are defined as items having intellectual content that by design serve as a major tool for assisting in the instruction of a subject or course. These items may be available in bound, unbound, kit, or package form and may consist of hard-backed or soft-backed textbooks, consumables, learning laboratories, manipulatives, electronic media, and computer courseware or software.


    State Adopted Instructional Materials are those instructional materials that are currently under contract with Florida’s Department of Education (FLDOE).


    Each year, Florida adopts instructional materials for specific classes. We refer to these materials as major tools of instruction and their ancillaries. Major tools are materials that cover the Florida Standards, stated intended outcomes, and course objectives for the specific classes.


    Chosen subject areas are called for adoption each year on a rotating basis, usually for a period of 6 years. The complete adoption cycle and additional adoption resources can be viewed on the FLDOE Instructional Materials website at  

    Marion County’s Instructional Materials Department:

    • Coordinates purchases of instructional materials
    • Recommends instructional materials allocations based on annual student enrollment, new core subject adoptions, and curriculum alignment
    • Facilitates the adoption process in accordance with state statutes and district procedures
    • Manages district orders placed through the Florida School Book Depository (FSBD)
