The public is invited to review textbooks and instructional materials that have been proposed for use in South Carolina’s public schools.

“South Carolina students, families, educators, and communities are invited and strongly encouraged to review and provide feedback on the materials proposed for use in classrooms across our state,” State Superintendent of Education Molly Spearman said. “It is imperative that South Carolinians make their voices heard in this important process.”

The instructional materials are on display at 15 locations throughout the state – including at University of South Carolina Beaufort – through Dec. 9. Instructions for submitting comments will be available at the USCB Bluffton Campus Library at 8 East Campus Drive.

In addition to the display sites, digital access and public comment is available online at
