Policies and Procedures

             Policies and Procedures 


The goal of North Drive Elementary’s Media Center/Coordinator it to provide flexible access to instructional services (Media Coordinator) in addition to flexible access to school library media center resources.  We are able to accommodate individuals and groups simultaneously.
North Drive Elementary has a full time Media Coordinator and  a part time Media Assistant.  This allows us to implement the State/County mandate for a fully flexible schedule with all-day open checkout.


Checkout will open at 8:30 am, after the morning announcements. 

When the Media Assistant is present, lessons and checkout will run simultaneously.  Checkout will remain open throughout the day unless a lesson is in session, and the Media Assistant is unavailable.  In that case, checkout will be available when the lesson has ended or the Media Assistant returns.  Students may leave their selections on the counter with their name and homeroom number, and we will deliver the books to them when they have been checked out.

If there are time slots available, teachers may sign up for whole class checkout.  During a whole class checkout session, no more than half of the class may be actively looking for books. 

Teachers may bring something for waiting students to work on.  Students must act in an appropriate manner while selecting/checking out and waiting.  There should be a minimal amount of noise…this is a LIBRARY.  Book shelves should remain neat.  Teachers are asked to monitor their class’s behavior while Media Coordinator assists students in locating/checking out books. 

Again, the Media Coordinator reserves the right to ask students who are showing inappropriate behavior to sit/leave the library.

Library Lessons 

The sign-up book for library lessons is kept at the library’s front desk.  Library lessons will be scheduled on an “as-need” basis.  

Teachers who have a lesson which requires using the library resources will contact the Media Coordinator to find an appropriate time schedule.

Library Use for Special Events

If you need to use the library for a special event, please see the Media Coordinator to avoid schedule problems. 

If you need any type of presentation equipment, please let the media staff know prior to the scheduled presentation.  This will allow adequate time to ensure all equipment is functioning properly.

Computer Mini-Lab

The sign-up sheet for computer lab time is posted at the top of the stairs in the loft.   You must sign-up on that sheet.  (These sheets will also be kept in order to provide teachers with evidences for their PDPs.) 

Rules for the computer mini-lab are posted. 

The first class in may boot up the computers if they are not already turned on.  The last class out may properly shut down the computers for the evening. 

Report any computer problems to media staff.


If you have items to be laminated please bring them to media staff or the workroom.  Be sure items are labeled with your name.  Lamination will be done in the mornings on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
