Below is an email I received from Hal Phoenix out of Ellendale, who just moved here from Colorado and is soon to become an NDSTA member. This is a growing request regardless of location/district size, so maybe our members have some solutions:
I teach at a Hutterite Colony for Ellendale Public Schools. Next year I will have 6-9th graders (12) and I need to teach Earth Science. However, I don't have any textbooks. The Colony won't buy them and my district won't buy them. Could the Science Association help? Either put me in touch with a teacher/district that is replacing their classroom textbooks and would be willing to donate their old textbooks to my class or with a grant to buy some textbooks?
I don't think he would object if you contacted him directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org
