Instructional materials used in Oregon’s classrooms need to reflect the most current information and research and be aligned to academic content standards. To this end, these instructional materials are subject, by law, to a review process and must meet established specifications and criteria in order to be approved by the State Board of Education for use in classrooms.
Criteria used in the evaluation of instructional materials are developed by stakeholders and formally adopted by the State Board of Education.

Instructional Materials & the Common Core
In 2012-13 an Interim Adoption (Bridge Year) took place to “bridge” Oregon’s existing investment in instructional materials to support the implementation of the Oregon Common Core State Standards. CCSS ELA and Literacy instructional materials will be reviewed in Summer 2013 and Math in 2014.
The review process requires assurance from publishers and content providers that print materials meet the most current National Instructional Materials Accessibility Standards (NIMAS) and electronic copies are submitted to the National Instructional Materials Accessibility Center (NIMAC).
Districts may choose to postpone the adoption of instructional materials for up to two years and must notify the state. (OAR 581-022-1650 and ORS 337.120.)
Prices and materials listed are guaranteed under contract for six years.
