Allyson Morgan looks through textbooks Tuesday afternoon as Wilson County educators attend the Textbook Adoption Event. Morgan is a computer teacher at Watertown Middle School.

The community got a firsthand look at textbooks options for the upcoming school-year.

Beginning at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, teachers, parents and other interested parties were able to stop by the Teacher Training Resource Center in Lebanon. At the center, textbook vendors had set up tables featuring their products.

"This is a chance for the community to see the state-approved textbooks the county will get a chance to adopt this year," said Wilson County Schools Textbook Coordinator Clay Hannah. The books focused on CTE (Career Technical Education) course such as human services, computer applications and keyboarding.

"Basically with textbooks - they have a six year adoption period. It goes in different spells with different subjects," Hannah said. "This event is for everybody. They can see what the teachers get to see."

Kim Clemmons, with instructional technology, said the book unveiling is an annual event.
