It's official! We have moved to our new District website, now located at acpsd.net. Please take a moment to visit and explore our new online home for updated information on all items related to Aiken County Public Schools.
As a reminder, our individual school web pages will continue to link back to School Fusion (hosted at this site) until the start of the new school year when all school-related pages will make the transition to our new web platform.
Thank you for your continued interest in and support of Aiken County Public Schools, and welcome to acpsd.net! †
†The Media Center strives to be an essential part of the instructional program and the hub of the school. We are assisting students and staff in becoming effective 21st Century users of ideas and information while creating life-long learners and lovers of reading.
The media center operates on a fixed schedule. Students come during their regular scheduled class time and are permitted to come throughout the day to exchange their books once they have finished reading and to utilize the media center at the convenience of the classroom teacher. Teachers and students are encouraged to check out materials as needed for personal or classroom use. Students are aware that classroom library books do not go home, but they are allowed to take media center books home.
Listed below are the amounts of books students are allowed to check out each week.
†GRADE††††††††††† ††††††††NUMBER OF BOOKS
5K & 1st grade † † † † † † 1 book
2nd grade † † † † † † † † † 1 book (plus 1 book for speedy readers at teachers request)
3rd ~ 5th† † † † † † † † † † 2 books
†Books are due weekly and may be returned before the due date if needed. If time beyond the due date is needed, books can be renewed. It is a student's responsibility to keep up with and take care of the book(s) they borrow from the media center. It is in good faith that we have loaned them the books in hope that they will return them the same. There are no overdue fines when books are returned late, however when a student returns a book that is damaged or has lost it he or she will have to pay to replace it.†
