Hi all,
I am wondering if any folks out there use teachers to help preview materials to add to the existing collection. Our center(K-12 regional) has 4 preview sessions a year, with a variety of levels, subjects and schools represented. They work in teams(of like areas) and preview materials. They fill out forms and then I make the last decision. What I am wondering is if there are other models out there which are working well?

Any suggestions or ideas would be appreciated!
