ED (REGULATION) – INSTRUCTIONAL RESOURCES
Textbooks, generally, should not be changed in less than two years due to the costs to the student and the bookstore. Changes should be planned at least 60 days in advance of use according to the published dates on the calendar of activities for the Educational Programs Advisory Council. When a change is desired, the following procedure should be used:
1. Using the textbook designation form or the textbook discontinuation form as appropriate; textbooks, workbooks and any required materials must be submitted by the division director to the Vice President and Dean of Instruction. The Vice President and Dean of Instruction will submit the approved copy to the bookstore.
2. Book lists will be furnished to each division director. If you are planning to discontinue a text, mark through the title in red on your book list and complete discontinuation and designation forms along with estimate enrollment.
3. Edition changes only may be submitted in a memo to the bookstore with a copy to the office of Vice President and Dean of Instruction.
The bookstore must be contacted first to requisition all supplies. Only if unavailable through the bookstore will other vendors be approved.
In no case should an instructor sell materials directly to students in a credit class without prior approval from the Vice President and Dean of Instruction or the vice president of community services in a non-credit class.
The supply costs should be kept to a minimum for each student.
The required supplies should be listed on the syllabus.
All purchasing policies distributed from the business office must be followed. [See CF (LOCAL)]
Instructor-prepared materials (syllabus, notes, study guides, etc.) sold to the student through the bookstore must have written approval from the Vice President and Dean of Instruction in a credit class or the vice president of community services in a non-credit class.
