We are so excited to celebrate the conclusion of another great year at CAL! Thank you for allowing us to partner with you in educating and loving your children. It is time to wrap up courses and that means final exams and the return of textbooks.
All the information you need will be coming by email from the Media Center beginning May 2. The emails will show all library books, fines (incurred during the year for copies, late books, lost books, etc.), textbooks and Chromebooks currently checked out to you. You are expected to return the materials that match the barcodes in the email.
We appreciate your cooperation in helping us collect all resources in a timely and smooth manner. Any item checked out to you which is not turned into the Media Center by May 26, will incur a non-refundable fee equaling the sum of the items not returned and fines not paid, even if the items are returned later. This fee will appear on FACTS and will trigger grades and transcripts to be held until the balance is paid.
Textbooks are always collected during the week of finals. Before you take each final in May, you should go to the Media Center to check in the textbook for the final you are about to take. You will then take the textbook to the classroom where it will be stored over the summer.
Please carefully review the following guidelines for textbook return:
1. Damaged Textbook: If your textbook is damaged in any way, (ripped pages, water damage, etc.) your FACTS account will be charged the replacement value of the textbook. Do not order a replacement book through Amazon. We have special rates and need to make sure the correct edition will be purchased.
2. Lost Textbooks: You MUST return the textbook that was assigned to you at the beginning of the year. There is a barcode on the cover of the book that should match the barcode in the emails you receive. If your textbook is lost or has the wrong barcode, you will be billed through FACTS, triggering a hold on your grades and transcript. You must either return the book by May 26, or pay the replacement value to release the hold.
3. Clean: Please remove all papers and book covers prior to the turn-in date.
