The topic of reading lists and appropriateness also was raised at the board meeting. School reading lists vary by age group and subject levels, and there are books that are assigned, as well as others from which students have some choice in their selections.

He said the state does not provide any requirements, but it does feature a suggested reading list, which can be found on the state department of education's website.
