April 2022 – Texas State Library & Archives Commission Issued Guidelines for School Libraries Collection Development

April 11, 2022 – TEA Issued Model Policy for Library Collections

May 16, 2022 – TASB Issued Updates to EF(LOCAL) Policy

TASB issued a policy alert which addressed the selection and review of instructional materials, including library materials. The policy alert directs TASB members to contact their TASB policy consultant to discuss the various options; at that time, they can receive the policy documents. TASB did not release the new policy options.

According to the policy alert, TASB is offering two options for districts to consider:

  1. Single policy option – keep current EF (LOCAL) or adopt the new, expanded version of EF (LOCAL)
  2. Split policy option – address instructional materials and library materials in separate policies by adopting the new EFA (LOCAL) for instructional materials and new EFB (LOCAL) for library materials.

If you have questions about the specific TASB policies, please reach out to your administration for more information.
