CUSD Supplementary Materials Request
There are lots of great instructional materials that can be used to supplement our core curricular materials ... but we want to make sure they are appropriate for our standards and our students. Before purchasing supplementary materials for your classroom, be sure to submit a Supplementary Materials Request. Please note that depending on the nature of your request, there may be further action required on your part (e.g., obtaining evaluation copies). Read the instructions carefully to determine if additional steps will need to be taken to complete your request, and check our list of approved supplementary materials to see if what you would like to use has already been approved (or not approved).
If the materials you are requesting are instructional/curricular in nature (as opposed to assistive or productive), you will need to make a brief (15-20 minutes) presentation to appropriate IRC staff on the material and its potential use in the classroom. You may wish to review the Supplementary Textbook or Instructional Material Evaluation Instrument that will be used to evaluate the instructional appropriateness of the materials before submitting your request.
NOTE: The IRC carries many supplementary materials in our media center, and these are available for teacher checkout. Before completing a request or spending site funds, be sure to search our media center for available resources that you can borrow at no cost!
Supplementary Novel Requests
If the supplementary material you are requesting is a novel, please use the Supplementary Novel Request Form to submit your request. You may also wish to review the Supplementary Novel Evaluation Instrument that will be used to evaluate the instructional appropriateness of the novel before submitting your request.
If the supplementary material you are requesting is technological in nature (e.g., software, app, website), do not use these forms. Instead, please visit our Technology page and submit the appropriate form based on the type of technology you are requesting.
