Objective: The article substantiates the place and role of interaction between the subjects of the US school education textbooks providing system. The analysis of the concept of "interaction" is carried out. Methods: The study uses published materials of UNESCO and the National School Boards Association (NSBA), which through their programs, conferences, seminars promoted the issues of effective management of the textbook system of educational institutions, reducing production costs. Numerous scientific works of American colleagues focusing on the development of mechanisms for regulating the relationship in the system of providing textbooks for school education in the United States (Levin Douglas, Joseph P. Farrell, Stephen P. Henneman, Harriet Tyson et al) are analysed. Results: Levels of interaction in the process of providing American schools with textbooks are determined. The complex relationships between the US education system, the providing textbooks system, and the school textbook publishing system are discussed. Specific features and mechanisms of managing interaction of participants of providing schools with textbooks processes in the USA are covered. Conclusion: The conducted analysis of the materials helped to clarify the role of textbooks in the development of the American school education system; identify trends in the system of providing it with textbooks; analyse the mechanisms of interaction management at different levels (federal, state, local); the role of the subjects of interaction in the adoption of textbooks; describe the set of relations that have developed between them.
