BPS Instructional Materials
The goal of Brevard Public Schools Instructional Materials Department is to select and provide state and school board approved instructional materials for all students.
Brevard County residents and parents are invited to preview science instructional materials adopted for the 2018-19 school year. These materials have demo accounts readily available for the public review process. Any resident or parent who wishes to file a petition proffering evidence that selected instructional materials don't meet requirements of Florida Statutes may do so by completing the petition form accessible below within the 30-day public review window. Petitions are due to Pam Escobar via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by mail to 2700 Judge Fran Jamieson Way, Viera FL 32940 by February 22, 2018. All petitioners will have a chance to speak at the March 6th public hearing in front of the district hearing officer. This hearing will begin at 6pm in the Superintendent's conference room at the Viera Educational Services Facility.
