Regarding Textbooks

California state law requires school districts to provide each student with one set of materials for each core subject. Class sets of textbooks are not included in this requirement and often are not provided. Most subject materials are now available online.

Listed below are the textbooks that the San Diego Unified School District has adopted and provides for middle school students.

If you wish to purchase additional copies, or find that you need to replace a copy that has been damaged, Amazon.com and AbeBooks.com have gently used books at reasonable prices. Please be careful to order books using their International Standard Book Numbers (ISBN's) so that you buy the correct edition.
