FAQ

TEXTBOOK CARE – TIPS AND REMINDERS

  1. As soon as you receive your textbook(s)- WRITE your full name in INK on the inside cover and the school year.
  2. We recommend keeping your textbook inside a plastic bag while in your backpack to prevent liquid damage from rain, water, or drinks. Any textbook returned with liquid damage will require payment of the full replacement cost of the textbook.
  3. Make a note of each textbook and its barcode number (it will be on the front or the spine of the book).
  4. DO NOT share your textbooks and DO NOT leave them in an UNLOCKED locker or in your teachers’ classrooms.
  5. PLEASE keep track of your textbooks.
  6. You are financially responsible for any loss or damages to your textbooks. Any fees/fines you incur for textbooks will be charged to your account and will stay on your account through Senior year if not paid or reconciled.  This WILL impact schoolwide privileges, activities, and events.
  7. Remember – each one of these textbooks were checked out to YOU. You are responsible for making sure they are returned in good condition and on time at the end of the school year.

**Florida State Statute outlines textbook responsibilities and accountability:  1006.42

Responsibility of students and parents for instructional materials.—All instructional materials purchased under the provisions of this part are the property of the district school board. When distributed to the students, these instructional materials are on loan to the students while they are pursuing their courses of study and are to be returned at the direction of the school principal or the teacher in charge. Each parent of a student to whom or for whom instructional materials have been issued, 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 when directed by the school principal or the teacher in charge, and shall pay for such loss, destruction, or unnecessary damage as provided under s. 1006.28(3).

We don’t charge fines for overdue books. We do charge FULL  replacement fees for books damaged by liquids or writing.

If your book is damaged, please stop by CoLab and we will review the material and let you know the replacement price. You can also see the cost of each book that you checked out by going to:
