Check-Out - The media center uses an automated circulation/cataloging system. Before checking out materials, each patron will receive an orientation and be assigned an individual patron number. Student patrons are responsible for their patron card. The patron card is required for check-out. Lost or damaged cards may be replaced for a fee. Students are allowed to check out one book at a time unless they have special permission from the media specialist.
Teacher patrons have extended check-out privileges, but shall be held responsible for lost or damaged materials.
Check-In - It is the students' responsibility to see that materials are properly returned for check-in to the designated area.
The media program provides a framework for cooperatively planning instructionally related and unified media services. Therefore, the media specialist and classroom teacher shall plan together for the most effective utilization of these services. The teacher shall plan with the media specialist when he/she needs to:
All of these activities shall be designed to implement, enrich, and support the classroom teacher's instruction. These educational procedures and/or techniques shall be:
The Brantley County Board of Education requires that all employees adhere to the provisions of the existing U. S. Copyright laws and maintain the highest possible ethical standards in the use of copyrighted materials for educational purposes.
The principal of each school shall designate the school media specialist to maintain an awareness of current copyright provisions and furnish such information to school personnel on a regular and timely basis. A building level administrator shall be responsible for the assurance of copyright compliance. At no time shall the school media center staff be held accountable for infringement of copyrighted materials by other personnel, even if the materials and equipment are checked out through the media center.
Planning for the use of videotapes or DVDs in the instructional program deserves the same careful attention given to planning all classroom instruction. Use of video materials should be detailed on your lesson plans and approved by the school principal. Always remember:
Special Note: Students are never allowed to move televisions. The teacher is responsible for transporting equipment. Do not allow anyone to ride on equipment carts or use them for a ladder or a stool. There is a possibility that failure to follow these instructions may result in serious personal injury.
Students who cannot participate in their class activities and who are sent to the media center must have an alternative assignment provided by the appropriate teacher and approved by an administrator. Entire classes are not to be scheduled into the center for inclement weather reasons or entertainment purposes.
The media specialist's primary form of discipline is to send students back to the classroom. Students may not be sent to the media center for recess, since returning him/her to an empty classroom would result in his/her being in an unsupervised classroom situation. Teachers may not send students to the media center for "isolation" or to perform punishment work assignments.
Students sent to the media center for the purpose of taking make-up tests are the direct responsibility of the teacher.
