Teacher Use Policy
Pass Policy: Students are welcome to visit the library at any time. Before school, after school, and during lunch are times when students may come on their own. When coming to the library from a class, however, students must have a PASS and must sign in at the desk. Students without passes will be sent back to class. MAKE SURE TO INCLUDE THESE PROCEDURES IN YOUR SUBSTITUE PLANS!
Classes: You need to schedule a classroom area for your class prior to when you plan on using the library. Classes are scheduled through Eduphoria. Then, we will schedule a time to collaborate on the lesson(s) your students need to effectively utilize the library services and its resources. If you come to the Library without scheduling in advance, there may not be classroom space available and we will not be able to accommodate you. Only 4 students from your class can come to the Library without you. Please do not send groups of students from your classroom unsupervised. They will be sent back to class.
Research Lab: The lab located in the library is set-up for instructional use, this is not a "drop-in" lab. This is essentially my classroom and any scheduling of the lab must coincide with a lesson. In order to reach the highest level of collaboration, I would really like to be involved in the development, execution, assessment and evaluation of unit.
Substitues: Substitues are not to come to the library without prior permission. Please consult with me before involving a substitue in the library plans.
