Textbook Replacement Fees

Your student will receive copies of the textbooks being used in their classes all year during the first week of school. Textbooks are issued according to the barcode number. Therefore, students must return the same books that were issued to them. It is highly recommended that your student put their name in the front of the book in ink right away. Remind your students not to leave their textbooks in classrooms. If another student uses their book and it becomes damaged or lost, your student is still responsible.

Lake Shore Public Schools recognizes that the rising cost of instructional materials must be addressed in order to maintain our goal of academic excellence for our students.

Lake Shore Public Schools provides textbooks and other instructional materials at no cost to the students and their parents/guardians. Students are responsible for the proper use and care of those instructional materials issued to them. The parent, guardian, or other person having custody of the student to whom the instructional materials are issued shall be liable for any loss, abuse, or damage in excess of that which would result from normal use of the materials.

The student will be charged full replacement cost if the book is rendered unusable or lost. All other damage (including missing covers, water damage, or intentional misuse) will result in a fine based on the list on the following page. If a book is lost, rendered unusable or damaged, the student will not be issued another textbook that same school year until the replacement cost or fine is paid.
