Textbook checkout policy is consistent across the San Ramon Unified School District high schools. The only textbooks that will be checked out prior to starting the new school year will be for AP classes that require the textbook for summer assignments. There will be no summer checkouts for any other AP classes or regular classes. During the school year, textbooks are available for in-library use in the Contra Costa libraries at Montgomery Street and Dougherty Station in San Ramon.
If a student checks out a textbook or novel from the Textbook Office:'
- They are held responsible if the book is lost or damaged.
- They are responsible for the book to be returned directly to the Textbook Office, not left with a teacher.
- They are responsible for returning the exact book with the barcode that was checked out to them. Replacement books or a boo, that was accidentally swapped with a friend are not substitutes. Please see District Policy below.
It is recommended that students put their names on the inside cover of their book as soon as they check it out.
If a student drops a class, they should return their textbook back to the Textbook Office immediately.
Fines may be paid at the Textbook Office with exact cash or check payable to SRVHS. Fines may also be paid online at the school website
Please keep your receipt. If a parent/student locates a lost book that was paid for, parents may return the book to their student's school within 90 days of payment in order to request a refund. Books located and returned after 90 days from the date of the payment will not be refunded as a replacement will have already been ordered.
SRVUSD Textbook Replacement Policy
Students are responsible for returning all textbooks, instructional materials, and novels loaned to them for the school year. If students do not return the materials loaned (checked out) to them, they will be charged a replacement fee to replace the lost edition(s). In order to assure that we are getting the correct nook, we are unable to accept replacement books purchased online or at bookstores. There are often many editions of the same book available as well as California vs National editions that appear to be an exact match outwardly; however, the content can and does, vary. Also, used books available on Amazon often arrive with missing pages, and/or damage that causes the book to be unusable. To ensure that we get the correct edition that exactly matches the one that was lost, our District textbook cleck will order a replacement from one of our reliable vendors. Students who do not return District Instructional Materials will be assessed a reparation amount based on the replacement cost of the book(s). This assessment will remain with the student throughout their tenure with the school district until reparation has been made.
Per Board Policy Board Policy (AR 5125.2)
and California Education Code (EC 48904
), the district may withhold grades, diplomas, or transcripts from the student and parent/guardian until reparation is made.
