The Littleton Public Schools Literature Approval Committee is comprised of district staff and community members who review all fiction and non-fiction books submitted for approval. Membership is established at the beginning of each school year, and the committee is coordinated by the LPS curriculum department. The committee meets four or five times a year as needed.
Primary responsibilities of the Literature Approval Committee include reviewing books submitted by teachers for consideration to be added to the Multiple Copy Literature List. The committee considers alignment to the approved district curriculum, and the appropriateness of content for students at the recommended grade level.
After its review, the committee may accept, reject, or revise requests for approval. Books recommended for approval by the Literature Approval Committee are forwarded to the Board of Education for its review and final decision.
