TEXTBOOK POLICY

All textbooks will be barcoded and circulated through the West Orange High School Media Center via Destiny.

Students must have a West Orange High School identification card to check out textbooks.

At the end of the class/term/year, each textbook will be scanned as it is returned to the media center. Students must listen to the name being stated and confirm that the textbook was assigned to that student. 

Fines will be issued for damaged textbooks per the severity. Students should report textbook damage immediately. Students who have misplaced their textbook may check in the media center to see if it has been returned; otherwise the student is monetarily responsible for the loss of the textbook.

Students can also check destiny.ocps.net and log in to their account to check for missing textbooks.

Students are not allowed to leave assigned textbooks in classrooms.

OBLIGATIONS

Textbook obligation lists are maintained by the media center. All textbook obligations must be cleared each school year and upon withdrawing from West Orange High School.

A receipt will be issued for any payments made.

Students must be clear of all obligations before they will be allowed to purchase parking permits, yearbooks, tickets to special events, participation in graduation ceremonies, etc.

According to Florida Statute, Chapter 1006.42 and Chapter 1006.28

 “Each parent of a student is liable for any loss or destruction of, or unnecessary damage to, the instructional materials or for failure of the student to return the instructional materials, and shall pay for such loss, destruction, or unnecessary damage as provided by law.”

 “The failure to collect such sum by the principal may result in the suspension of the student from participation in extracurricular activities…”
