K-12 Core Lit & Recommended Reading

LUSD has established new Core Lit & Recommended Reading Guidelines for Grades K-6, and 7-12

  • For TK-6 Core ELA/English, when selecting books for the optional study, we will not refer to the former Core Literature Suggested Readings (Rev. April 2009). We will refer to the Trade Books and Additional Recommended list of novels provided by the current adopted curriculum.
  • If a teacher is going to incorporate a full-text study, and as long as the bulk of instruction for the standards and skills is being provided through the Instructional Path, they can choose one or more novels from (a) the core and additional recommended novels linked to the current curriculum and (b) other books that appear on the approved California Department of Education list that is appropriate for the students' grade and maturity levels as long as the book does not appear as a core novel for another grade level. (Gr.7-12 StudySync Anchor Texts Core Selection below), CDE Book Search website:  http://www3.cde.ca.gov/reclitlist/search.aspx
  • With regard to purchasing and obtaining additional novels, the district has select novels available for check out through our online Destiny QUEST catalog.  If a novel is not available through the district, the novel will have to be purchased through site funds.

LUSD Textbook Information and Guidelines


The loss of costly textbooks throughout LUSD is a continuing hardship to our District.  Our students and parents need to know what the expectations are with regards to the care and return of the textbooks that are loaned to students every year.  Below are the LUSD Textbook Information and Guidelines that were sent home with Orientation Packets, and require signature of the parent and student information before they are returned to the school.
