ALL textbooks are barcoded. Your student is responsible for returning the book with the barcode that was checked out to them. If the book is lost, it will need to be paid for. All textbooks that are checked out from the Textbook Office need to be returned directly to the Textbook Office, not the teacher. If a student drops a class, please have them return their textbook back to the Textbook Office immediately.
