Mission Statement

The purpose of the West Orange High School Media Center is:

  • To function as the information center of the school.
  • To provide intellectual access to information through learning activities that are curriculum related.
  • To provide physical access to information through a carefully selected and systematically organized collection.
  • To support intellectual freedom and access to information.
  • To support the use of technology in the process of learning and sharing ideas and knowledge.

Hours

Hours may be adjusted to accommodate Media Staff commitments. We will post changes on the whiteboard outside the Media Center.

Policies

Students may utilize the Media Center before school and after school without a pass. During class time students must have a pass from their teacher to come to the media center.

Students may utilize the Media Center during their lunch period. There is no eating or drinking in the Media Center. Student(s) choosing to use Media Center during lunch, must stay in the Media Center for the whole lunch period. Administration requires students to remain in the Cafeteria or Media Center during the lunch period for safety purposes.

The process for new students to receive a laptop may take 48 hours upon enrollment. Information about LaunchEd can be located on the OCPS website.
