Textbook Policies

Issuance of Textbooks

  • All books will be barcoded and circulated through the Legacy Middle School Media Center using the management software, Destiny. Destiny has been implemented throughout Orange County Public Schools and tracks student textbook information.
  • Textbooks are not typically issued to students. If a student does request check out, then they must have a Legacy ID.
  • It is strongly suggested that students record the textbook barcode number in their Legacy Student Planner.
  • At the end of the class term/year, each textbook will be scanned as it is returned to the Media Center. 
  • The textbook tracking system will provide the obligation list.
  • Fines will be issued for damaged textbooks per the severity. The student will be assessed $1.00 for damaged barcodes. Students should report textbook damage immediately. Students who have misplaced a textbook may check in the Media Center to see if it has been returned; otherwise the student is responsible monetarily for the loss of the textbook. The Legacy barcode on the front of the textbook is unique and it must be recognizable at the time of return.
  • Students SHOULD NOT leave assigned textbooks in classrooms.

According to Florida Statue, Chapter 1006.42:

"Each parent of a student is liable for any loss or destruction of, or unnecessary damage to, the instructional materials or for failure of the student to return the instructional materials, and shall pay for such loss, destruction, or unnecessary damage as provided by law." 

"The failure to collect such sum by the principal may result in the suspension of the student from participation in extracurricular activities."
