In concert with the Tennessee Department of Education, Tennessee Book Company has incorporated slight modifications to the process for recording adoptions.

Your cooperation in filing this information is crucial to the overall success of the adoption process, because the information you provide is critical in determining the forecasts for inventory requirements on the parts of both the various publishers and Tennessee Book Company. If the information is not filed in a timely and accurate manner, materials requirements forecast for Tennessee could be understated and shortages in stock could ensue.

There are three links provided below that will be used during this process. The Instruction Checklist page is a step-by-step listing of how to proceed. Please take a minute to print and review this page before proceeding any further. Included in these instructions are the instructions on how to use the other two links. The last two links are the Guidelines and form for adopting a textbook program that is not on contract.
