Textbook Charges

Books 6.jpg              Students, check your textbooks!       Books 6.jpg

At the beginning of the school year it is important for students to check their textbooks and report any damages. After all textbooks have been distributed, students have 2 weeks to report any damages so they will not be charged at the end of the year. Do not leave textbooks or library books in lockers overnight or on weekends - YOU are responsible for the condition of your textbooks.

All textbooks are due to the SVHS Library at the end of the class (semester/year). When students return their textbooks, the books are reviewed and assessed for any damages sustained. Below is the list of criteria we use in determining what fees to charge for damaged books. This information is provided to ensure there are no unforeseen problems at the end of the school year. Damage fees are used to pay for the repair or replacement of books. Please contact the library if you have any questions.

Please note: All textbooks/library book debts are considered outstanding obligations and diplomas will be withheld until all outstanding library obligations are cleared per California Education Code.

We hope this information helps to ensure that there are no unforeseen problems. We hate to impose fees on damaged texts each year, but these textbooks must tolerate many years of student use. The damage fees that are collected each year are only used to pay for the repair or replacement of these books. Please contact the library if you have any questions or concerns.
