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 online at http://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.
