2016-2017 Student Handbook states on Page H-59:
"State adopted textbooks are provided by the school. State law mandates that textbooks be covered at all times. Students are personally responsible for each book issued them and must pay for lost, stolen, or damaged books. Students are not to write in the textbooks. Students are responsible for checking their condition, noting any prior damage, and placing their name inside the front cover. Students whose book record is unclear will not receive textbooks for the next academic year."
SHS Handbook Addendum states on Page 17:
"All textbooks are the property of the State of Texas. Students are held financially responsible for lost or damaged books. Students are required to put their name in each book along with the current school year. Students should not give their books to teachers, leave them in a classroom or someone else's locker, loan them to other students, or leave them unattended."
Textbook Contract: Textbooks are not mandatory. Books issued to students must be returned at the end of the course or anytime prior to the end of the course, if not in use. If a book is not returned, then the student will be charged for it. Students will also be charged for textbook damage. If the fine/fee is not paid, the student may not check out additional books, and records/participation in certain activities will be on hold. This includes, but is not limited to, graduation diploma, transcripts requests and parking permit.
