The State Education Department has received numerous inquiries from school districts wishing to download and use the NYS Common Core ELA/Literacy and Mathematics curriculum modules posted on EngageNY.org and apply State Textbook Aid towards the cost of reproducing the materials for classroom use.
Districts that choose to reproduce the New York State Common Core ELA/Literacy and Mathematics curriculum modules may claim the expenditures for reproduction for State Textbook Aid. The reproduced materials must be for use as a textbook. Any Textbook Aid generated as a result of these expenses will be a part of the district’s maximum allotment, not in addition to the district’s maximum allotment.
Questions regarding Textbook Aid may be addressed to the State Aid Unit at https://stateaid.nysed.gov/ or by phone at 518-474-2977.
