To: Textbook Coordinators Data Managers CC: Superintendents Business Managers From: Andrea Castañeda, Chief, Division of Accelerating School Performance Date: March 1, 2011 Re: Annual Listing of Textbooks Each year, the Department of Education collects and distributes a listing of textbooks used in all public schools in the state of Rhode Island. The purpose of this list is to meet the requirements of General Laws 16-23-2 and 16-23-3, which provide for the loan of textbooks to students enrolled in non-public schools in Rhode Island. LEAs are required to submit a complete listing of all textbooks planned for use during the 2011-2012 academic year to RIDE using eRIDE. eRIDE is an electronic process through which districts must manage their textbook lists by adding and deleting titles and related pertinent information. Instructions for the use of the eRIDE system, including detailed information about uploading textbook titles and ISBN numbers are attached. eRIDE can be accessed at All districts must update the complete list of textbooks in current use or planned to be in use during the 2011-2012 academic year by MARCH 25, 2011. Once RIDE has received updates from all school districts, the information will be aggregated and posted to the RIDE website. Any inquiries regarding the program should be addressed to Rosemary Burns at 401-222-8483 or Technical issues regarding the use of eRIDE should inquire at or 222 – 8400.
