State Textbook Adoption ProgramLast Updated: May 19, 2009
This program is administered by the State Office of Education. Each year publishing
companies who wish to participate in the program are required to send copies of their
pre-publication texts and curriculum series to participating organizations, including
Utah Valley University. The Textbook Commission reviews the materials and determines
which texts are approved for use in Utah schools. The purpose for sending copies of
the materials to the higher education sites is to expose pre-service students to instructional
materials before they become teachers.
