The team leader, Executive Director for Curriculum Development, Text Books and Research at the Ministry, Ms. Medi Herring Mensah, said the text books include English, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies for Grades 5-9, and supplementary readers for Grades 1-4.

Among the supplies are political and physical maps of Liberia, West Africa, the Continent of Africa, and the world as well as Thesaurus, dictionaries and model globes.
