Media Center Access
The purpose of the school library media center is to encourage the love of reading and to support the school community and curriculum goals through self-selected reading materials. The media specialist collaborates with families and teachers to support students in the selection of reading materials that meet their reading interests.
Media Access Levels
Parents and guardians have the right to limit their child’s access to materials in the school library. The media access level a parent/guardian selects for their student will be in effect for the student’s academic career in Volusia County Schools. The parent/guardian may request a change in access at any time by completing the form again or contacting the school media specialist.
The default access for all students is limited.
Definitions of access levels
- Limited Access: A student may access materials in the media center except for items on the parent permission required list and Young Adult (YA) titles (middle school only).
- Unlimited Access: A student has full access to the materials in Volusia County Schools libraries including access to any titles that require parent permission. This includes permission for the student to check out Young Adult (YA) titles when the student is in middle school.
- No Access: A student is not permitted access to materials in any of the Volusia County Schools libraries without parent permission.
Process for Modifying Media Access
Parents may modify their child’s access to materials in the school library by completing the Volusia County Schools Media Access or by completing a paper-based Volusia County Schools Media Access form available from the school media specialist.
