During its July 24 meeting, the Keller ISD board of trustees voted unanimously to approve the amended list of library book purchases for the 2023-24 school year.

The details

Jennifer Price, assistant superintendent of curriculum and instruction, presented the list of more than 1,000 books to the board.

“Feedback has been received from the community, and based on the feedback, the administration recommends amending the proposed list by removing the titles we received feedback on,” Price said.

Price closed out her presentation stating that the removed titles would be reviewed and further analyzed before being returned to the board of trustees for their further consideration.
