Textbooks costing a total of $253,473 – with most of that amount paying for $229,889 worth of Common Core State Standards edition English language arts books — are the subject of a public hearing Thursday before Fairfield-Suisun School District trustees.
The remaining $25,584 will go to books for American history, biology and other subjects.
Funding comes from the state lottery and money for instructional materials.
The Common Core language arts books are for grades 9, 10 and 11.
