7419 - Textbook Loans to Children Enrolled in Private Schools


The Grand Island Public Schools will annually generate a list of resources to include digital and electronic materials, certain write-in texts, as well as multiple texts on their annual list designated for use in the schools. This will be done by November 15 of each year for current resources and those approved by January 15. The list of textbooks will be available on the district website.

The last day for receiving applications for textbook loans from parents or legal guardians residing within the school district for use during the following school year is January 15 of each year.  A limit of 10 textbooks per student in grades K-6 and 8 textbooks per student in grades 7-12 has been established by NDE.

The Grand Island Public Schools shall follow guidance provided by NDE in Rule 4 (attached).

Ten days prior to the beginning of the district classes, the administration will notify parents or guardians in writing where and when textbooks will be available.  Parents or legal guardians receiving textbooks will be required to sign a receipt at the time the textbooks are picked up on designated Form NDE 122-002.  Parents or legal guardians shall return textbooks to the designated individual within the local school district within 15 days after the close of the school year.  All textbooks are to be returned in reasonably good condition. Lost or damaged books will require that the parent or legal guardian reimburse the district for replacement costs.

It is important to understand that a “textbook” shall be mean any instructional material designated for use by individual students as the principal source of study material in grades K-12 of a public school district as defined in Rule 4.
