State School Book Commission

The State School Book Commission was created by the South Carolina School Book Rental Textbook Law which took effect on June 1, 1936. It operated the statewide rental textbook program, providing all textbooks for use in state public schools participating in the program. Members of the Commission included the governor, state superintendent of education, director of the Division of Textbooks, one member of the State Board of Education, and three county superintendents. In 1966, its responsibilities were transferred to the State Board of Education and its personnel were transferred to that department to operate as the Division of Textbooks, although the commission continued to act in an advisory capacity. In 1970, all duties were transferred to the State Board of Education.
