Textbook/Classroom Equipment Accounting System

Textbooks are purchased by the Board of Education. It is most important that the following outlined procedure is adhered to in order that our district not be financially burdened and ultimately lack texts/equipment for future student use.

  1. Prior to distribution of textbooks/equipment, each teacher needs to record the textbook/equipment number.
  2. All textbooks/equipment must be turned in by the end of the final examination, since the exam may be administered in more than one location, immediate collection of texts/equipment from the designated areas will avoid a potentially confusing situation. The condition of the textbooks/equipment will be ascertained, and the student will be informed of any charges.

 Charges will be made in the following manner:

  • If a book was marked NEW and was returned in good condition, there will not be a charge.
  • If returned in FAIR condition, the student will pay ¼ of the price of the book.
  • If not returned, or if returned in a condition too poor for future use, the student will pay the full price of the book.
  • Similarly, if a book was given to a student in fair condition, and it was returned by the student to the school in poor condition, there will be no charge for the use of the book. If however, the book was returned in a condition too poor for future use, the student will pay ¼ the price of the book.

3. A list of those students to be charged will be given to the main office. This will include the title, publisher, ISBN #, subject the text was used for and what portion of the price of the book is to be charged (i.e. ¼, ½, etc…). It is the responsibility of the District Clerk to supervise the collection of these monies.

4. If equipment was lost or stolen, a fee is due the school to cover the cost of replacement.
