WVC 18 - 2 A- 8
§18-2A-8. Instructional resources must be approved and listed;
when changes may be effected; rules.
(a) No instructional resource, print or electronic, may be
used in any public elementary or secondary school in West Virginia
as the primary source to deliver the instructional goals and
objectives for state required courses unless it has been approved
and listed on the state multiple list by the state board, except as
otherwise provided in this section. Any changes of items made by
the state board shall become effective upon approval. The state
board may upon request by a county board and upon justification of
that request, and subsequent to the adoption by a county board
approve the adoption of additional items to meet the needs of
specific children which were not provided for in the original
adoption, or waive the requirement to adopt and use resources in a
particular school as provided for in section six, article five-a of
this chapter. Nothing in this section shall apply to the
supplementary items that are needed from time to time.
(b) The state board may grant permission to county boards for
the continued use of previously adopted resources that are listed
on the most recently expired multiple list appropriate for the
subject category under consideration. The continued use shall not
exceed a period as designated by the state board. The state board
may make such rules as it may deem necessary and expedient to carry
out the provisions of this article.
