Textbooks

Most classes use online textbooks or no textbook. Exceptions that I’m aware of, so far:

  1. Geometry textbook required
  2. Math 6/7/8 workbooks distributed.
  3. Algebra textbook is available, but not required, and that the page numbers do not match the electronic version to which students already have access.
  4. World History and U.S. History textbooks are online, but optional print version is available by request.
  5. Drama class scripts.

If your teacher needs to distribute a print textbook or other materials, they will let me know.
