Math in Focus Textbook/Workbook Guidelines
 
·         Math in Focus Textbooks are checked out to the individual student (much like a library book)
·         The student is responsible for the book (if it is damaged/lost/stolen they will have to pay for it)
·         Please do not lend out student textbooks to support staff/intervention people
·         Please do not lend a students’ book to another student
·         Teachers are not allowed to write numbers on the books
·         Please do not allow students to write/draw/doodle all over their textbooks
·         Lost/damaged workbooks-students will have to purchase a new one
 
 When a student transfers to a different school/district/state:
 
·         Math in Focus Textbooks A and B must be turned back in to the media center
·         Library Books must be turned back in to the media center
·         Math in Focus workbooks A & B must be turned back in to the media center to be forwarded to the child’s new school

Advanced Reader >>  The student must read three books with a 3.0 or higher ATOS book level (or 46 ATOS 100 book level or 440 ATOS 2000 book level) that are each worth at least two points. Only books Read Independently count toward certification.
