Public Notice

Procedures for Disposal of Obsolete Textbooks and Instructional Materials

Grades K-5

2016-2017


  1. The Board of Education declared on March 14, 2017 that current adopted English-Language Arts and English Language Development textbooks, and instructional materials will be obsolete at the close of the 2016/17 school year and approved disposal of these materials.  This Public Notice regarding the disposal has been posted in at least three locations, including on the PUSD website, until June 1 (over 30 days).  

  1. At the close of the 2016/17 school year, site staff may make these materials available to students, parents, and community members.  Information on the logistics (date, time, and location) of the release of obsolete textbooks and materials is to be made public in advance.  Donated materials must be labeled “obsolete” or “discard” before they are released to the public.  Stamp, printed labels, or prominent marker may be used to label books obsolete.

  1. It is the responsibility of the school site to box remaining obsolete materials for recycling pick up and have boxes/pallets ready for pick up in the site’s designated area.  Materials set to be recycled do not need to be labeled “obsolete.”  Boxes will be ordered for school sites.  If needed, additional boxes can be requested through the Media Services Department for this purpose.

  1. Nancy Tiedemann, Library/Media Technician, will arrange for a recycling pick up of all obsolete materials and notify school sites of the pick up dates.  Please contact Nancy Tiedemann at 925-426-4430, or Linda Flagler or Lisa Hansen, Executive Secretaries for Curriculum, at 925-426-4328.
