The end of the year is quickly approaching, so here is the textbook return information! Students and teachers can see what books they owe at any time (with the exception of some DSC voucher books) by visiting vPortal and clicking on the app for DESTINY. Choose “My Info” and it will tell you the textbook and library books/equipment that are checked out to you and any overdue materials.

TEACHERS SHOULD NOT COLLECT TEXTBOOKS FROM STUDENTS! IT COULD RESULT IN THE STUDENT BEING CHARGED FOR THE BOOK!  In order to be accountable for the books, students need to return them to the media center themselves. That way the media center is able to immediately tell the student if it is the wrong book, if it is a book belonging to someone else,  or if damaged, the cost for the book.   As always, textbooks are accepted for return unless the media center is being used for testing and the front door is open. The official return schedule coincides with exam weeks.
