Textbook Ordering Process
The following are factors that determine eligibility for ordering textbooks.

Textbooks are ordered based on membership (enrollment). If the membership increases in a grade or class, you may be entitled to order more textbooks. Textbooks are normally ordered mid-March for the next school year.

In elementary schools, it is necessary to re-order consumable books. A supplemental requisition is submitted in June to account for increased enrollment. In secondary schools, we require a mid-summer update, which includes an updated membership form and supplemental request for textbooks, if needed.

Campus Textbook Coordinator/Custodian must provide an actual enrollment when ordering books. Special Education students must be included in the membership of those grade or subject levels for which books are needed.

Three factors that determine the number of textbooks a campus or district is entitled:
The number of students enrolled in a grade and / or subject (enrollment count)
* grades K to 5th report the number of students enrolled in a grade
* grades 6th to 12th report the number of students enrolled in a subject

The allowable percentage determined by TEA above the campus' enrollment

The number of textbooks from the same multiple list already assigned to a campus or district based on the annual inventory.

The Ordering Process
* Campus Textbook Custodian will fill out a textbook requisition form when ordering books. The form must be filled out with as much information needed in order for it to be processed.
* The form maybe delivered or faxed to the Textbook Warehouse. Requisitions will be processed in the order in which they are received.
* The order will be delivered to the campus or the campus will be informed when order is ready to be picked up from the Textbook Warehouse. At that time, the Campus Textbook Coordinator/Custodian must verify the number of approved books, materials, etc. that were requested on the requisition form and sign for them. A Transfer Form will be provided for their records.
* Textbooks and instructional materials should be issued based on the number of students in each class.
*Campus Textbook Coordinator/Custodian is encouraged to keep a log of all charges/credits for their records. This will also be helpful in order to maintain an accurate inventory.
