Resource Accountability

SMCPS Issued Books, Consumables, & Technology

TECHNOLOGY

This year all students in SMCPS were issued a device for online learning.

Unless you are a Senior, students will keep their technology checked out over the summer. A technology survey will be sent out by the end of the school year that will be used to renew these devices to students. This will be a site based survey.

Please see the student resource accountability document for specific guidelines on Technology.


YOUR school will send out further guidance on technology returns if applicable in May.

Textbooks

Students have textbooks checked out in their names in most grade levels and classes. Textbooks have barcodes starting with a TB and then up to 15 digits.

Textbooks MUST BE returned at the end of the school year.

Consumables

A consumable is a resource that students have checked out to them that can be written in. Examples of consumables at the elementary level are Bridges Student book and Number Corner.

Examples of consumables at the middle school level are the science modules, Springboard and My Perspectives for ELA, and the Carnegie Math books. At the high school level students also have consumables in math and ELA courses.

While students do not have to return these, they are held accountable if they lose them and need a replacement.

Consumables do NOT get returned at the end of the school year.

Students That Withdraw

Student Withdrawal

When students leave SMCPS, the following items must be returned prior to withdrawing.

  • All textbooks and resources

  • All technology (laptops, chargers, iPad/charger, hot spots)

  • All Media Center books and resources

  • If anything is not returned a fine will be assessed for the cost of the materials and technology.

  • The Media Specialist at each site has a record of what each student has checked out.

Students Transferring IN COUNTY

If you are a student who is transferring schools within the county, here are the procedures you need to follow:
  • Media Center Books: These stay at the school you are leaving. Those resources will be returned to the Media Center.
  • TEXTBOOKS and Consumables: These do not get returned and can be taken with you to your new school.
  • Laptops, chargers, hotspots, and iPads (all TECH): This stays with you unless you attend one of these schools AND are in PreK, K, or 1st: *Carver, Park Hall, Green Holly, Greenview Knolls, or Lexington Park. *If you attend one of the schools listed and are in PreK, K, or 1st only, then you will return your technology and get a new device at the school you transfer to.
  • Information on resource fines and accountability is located in the SMCPS Student Handbook (pages 57 and 61). Fines are assessed on items not returned to the school they belong to.

SENIORS

ALL textbooks, resources, media center books, laptops, chargers, and hotspots MUST be returned by the end of the school year.


ALL SMCPS materials need to be returned.

Your school's media will send out specific dates for seniors to return their SMCPS issued resources.

Accountability $

Students are held liable and accountable for checked out resources, (textbooks, consumables and technology). If anything is lost, stolen, or broken fines are assessed to the student account and a debt letter will be emailed and/or mailed (see page 50, 51, & 61 of SMCPS Student Handbook).


Each consumable, textbooks and media center books has its own price which can be found in Destiny OR by asking the media specialist.
