INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS POLICY FOR GRADES 6-12
RESPONSIBILITY: Textbooks or any instructional materials become the student's responsibility from the moment the
students’ check out the materials until the moment they check them back into the library.
Giving a textbook or any materials to a teacher or friend does not constitute turning in the materials. All materials must be returned in person to the library before the end of the school year.
Leaving textbooks or any materials in classrooms or outside is not recommended. If any materials are stolen or someone damages a student's materials, the student is still responsible for the loss or damage.
It is the student's responsibility to protect materials from rain, moisture, and from damage by siblings or pets. Students will be fined if their textbook is returned with torn pages, underlining, or writing in or on the book.
If any materials are lost or damaged beyond use, the full replacement cost (the current price for a replacement will be charged.)
Students have two weeks to look over the materials they are initially issued and, if there is damage to the materials, they should notify the library staff.
If students do not return their materials at the end of the school year, they will be billed for the replacement price of the textbooks, per Board Policy 6161.2 and Ed Code 48904.3, and their grades, transcripts, or diploma are withheld.
TWO-HOME FAMILIES: For those families where there are two homes. Parents wishing for a second set of materials must contact the Librarian for approval for the second set. Materials must be provided from existing stock, and not require the purchase of additional texts. If the need arises, the student must return the second set of texts. The student is responsible for both sets that are checked out to them.
