Textbooks is where district-tracked instructional materials can be viewed and/or added to Instructional Materials Management. A district-tracked item is an ISBN maintained by the district office, and campuses will only be able to view the ISBN if approved by the district. The district controls the inventory counts for these items.

Note: A campus-owned item is an ISBN funded by a campus purchase and one the district does not wish to track (e.g., PLC book purchased for professional development use in campus trainings). The respective campus controls the inventory counts for these items and they are only visible in the respective campus's Textbooks grid.
