Textbooks are a necessary part of the High School experience. Some textbooks are now valued at a purchase cost over $100.00, with other paper back work books costing up to $50.00! The average Freshman will be using about $300.00 worth of textbooks. That estimate goes up with each succeeding year. It is important to understand the textbook process to help avoid having to pay high fines and debts on textbooks.
We use a Follett system called Textlink to manage the textbook process at Nevada Union. The program effectively links the student’s ID number to the textbook number code in each book.
|According to the California Ed Code 48904, the pupil, or a minor pupil
and their parent or guardian, is liable to the Nevada Joint Union High
School District for all property belonging to the school district that
was loaned to the pupil, and not returned to the district by the due
date, or returned damaged. Nevada Union has a policy in place that
requires the replacement costs of textbooks too damaged to be used
again, and a rebinding fee for books returned with binding damage. It is
important that parents and students understand that their student’s
official transcripts and diploma can be held until payment for fines are
(Ed code 48904(b)).
