Student Rights and Responsibilities in the Library Media Center (LMC)
The K-6, K-8, and middle school Library Media Centers are open the entire school day plus 15 minutes before the school day starts and 15 minutes after the school day ends. For high school hours, check the Student Handbook, or the LMC website. The LMCs provide books, reference materials, and computers for students to use. Technology is used for school work only. Teachers schedule library times to bring classes to the LMC and students may obtain individual passes from their teacher to take advantage of the library resources and space anytime during the school day. Users of a DVUSD library are expected to behave in a manner that upholds the integrity of the library as a welcoming, peaceful space in which users can check out books, read, research, collaborate, and study.
Books are checked out for up to two weeks, with the option to renew one time (unless the book is on hold by another student.) Students and parents are financially responsible for any books that are checked out in the student’s name. No fines are assessed for overdue books in the K-6, K-8, and middle schools, but student’s privileges to check out books will be suspended until the book(s) are returned in good condition. Some DVUSD high schools charge fines for overdue materials and the cost varies by location. Any lost or damaged items must be paid for before the student will be allowed to borrow more books. The LMC is open one day after the student’s last day of school. High school students may refer to the high school student handbook for specifics on overdue fines, lost or damaged materials at their school.
