California First-in-Nation Initiative to Develop Free Digital Textbooks for High School Students

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger launched an initiative to make California the first state in the nation to offer schools free, open-source digital textbooks for high school students.

The Governor directed his Secretary of Education Glen Thomas to ensure these resources are available for use in high school math and science classes by fall 2009, a critical first step in helping ensure digital textbooks are widely available to all California students.

Qualifying mathematics courses include geometry, algebra II, trigonometry, or calculus.

The science materials must be aligned to the standards for physics, chemistry, biology/life sciences, or earth sciences, including the investigation and experimentation strand.

Digital textbooks should approach or equal a full course of study and must be downloadable.
