  • 18. Scheduling  The media center opens at 7:45 and closes at 2:30 each instructional day. There is a plan in place at Daughtry Elementary that allows flexibly scheduled media center access. This applies to students and teachers in groups or as individuals simultaneously throughout each instructional day. Accessibility refers to the staff, facility, and the resources and is based on instructional need. If teachers need to use the facility for small group activities or whole class activities, then they would need to sign up on the media center scheduling sheet located on the circulation desk. The same goes for conferences and meetings that are to be scheduled during the instructional day. Student Use  There are many resources located in the media center that available for student use. Students have access to a variety of fiction and non-fiction books, resource books and guides, as well as the computers and internet. While students are using computers and other resources available, they are to adhere to the school computer use policy as well as the media center policies and procedures. In order for students to use the resources available to them, they need to get permission from the teacher and have a library pass. Students can use the computers up to 45 minutes with teacher permission.
  • 19. Checking Materials Out  All books should be checked out at the media center circulation desk. Students are allowed to check out 2 books at a time. This is the same for all grade levels and each book can be checked out for a 2 week period but can be renewed if the book is not on reserve. If a students has checked out books and the books becomes overdue, there are no monetary penalties (fines). However; the student will not be able to check out new books until the overdue book are accounted for. When books are checked out of the library, they become the students’ responsibility. Students are held accountable for lost or damaged items and parents are required to sign a policy agreement form at the beginning of the school year that explains the expectations and consequences connected to this policy. Teacher Use  Teachers are allowed to check materials out of the library and like students, all items should be checked out at the circulation desk. Items such as videos and DVDs should be returned within 10 days and books should be checked out no longer than 4 weeks. Due dates for teachers are flexible as long as items are not on wait list. Also, items are checked out based on instructional need . Teachers are not allowed to send students to check out items on their behalf. If a teacher needs material to be checked out and they do not have time to go through the checkout procedure in the media center, then they can e-mail the media specialist with their request and the media specialist has 24 hours to give the status of the resource of leave it in the teacher box if it is available.

Staffing  According to the Butts County school district policy manual, each school shall have a media center staffed by personnel in accordance with Rule No. 165-5-1-22 which states: a school system shall employ a full-time media specialist for each base-size or larger school. (i) A school system shall provide no less than half-time services of a media specialist for each school less than base size and shall provide adult supervision in the media center for the entire instructional day.

  • 26. The new facility plan layout includes more color and more soft reading areas. Students will also enjoy a variety of additional fiction books. A new magazine display has also been added to give students more choices. 4 additional computers have been added for students. Students can also create displays for the library for special holidays, seasons, etc. This would be a low-cost way to add décor to the library.
