If there is a need for extended use, teachers will check with a member of the media center staff for an exception to this rule.  Reference materials may be used in the media center. A teacher may check out reference books to be used in the classroom for a period during the day, but must be returned before 4:00 p.m.  Circulation will stop 1 1/2 weeks prior to the closing of school; exceptions must be made in advance.  There are no fines for overdue books. Students will pay for the replacement cost of books that have been damaged or lost. A book is considered lost if not returned within 30 days after check out or renewal. Teachers are encouraged to collaboratively plan and schedule lessons with the Media Specialist in advance. A schedule for whole class media lessons and book check will be created for teachers to follow. Teachers will accompany their classes during each visit. Teachers will sign up for a media time to come as a class every week on the same day/time.
