Textbooks are selected annually by a textbook adoption committee. The adoption schedule dictates which courses are eligible for textbook adoption.
Textbook adoption means the book has been approved. It does not guarantee the book will be purchased. For more information about the textbook adoption process, please visit the Tennessee Department of Education webpage.
Should any parent/citizen wish to view textbook materials being considered for adoption, please contact the principal at any school in the system. He/she will arrange for a time and location for viewing those materials.

These texts are Pilot's Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge and Mosby's Textbook for Nursing Assistants: 9th Edition.
