Woods Cross High School Library
Procedures and Guidelines 2021-2022
Updated October 1, 2021
Materials are selected for the Woods Cross High Library for the purposes of meeting the curriculum needs of the school and the individual reading needs of the students. All of the school’s stake holders (parents, students, teachers etc.) are encouraged to offer suggestions on materials they feel should be acquired by the library with the understanding that their requests will be evaluated by the Media Specialist before any acquisition will be made. All materials that are selected will meet the criteria that is established in the Davis School District Policy and Procedures under section 2.1.1. Additionally, other items taken into account when making selections include, but are not limited to the following:
-positive reviews from respected publications,
-feedback from teachers and students,
-student demand for a material,
-professional development for teachers,
-feedback from the different departments in the school,
-feedback from the School Library Advisory Committee,
-subject area curriculum,
-finishing a series
Materials that are selected for the purpose of promoting recreational reading are done so in a manner to meet the very diverse needs of the school’s patrons (students, teachers etc.) in a high school setting. Consequently, the materials contained within the library cover many different maturity levels. Students and parents are encouraged to evaluate the appropriateness of the materials based on their individual standards, so that they can check out and access materials that best suit them. If any individual wants to have a material removed from circulation, please see section 4 in the Davis School District Policy and Procedures. If you have any questions, please see the district FAQ's section found here: Parent FAQ's.
In an effort to maintain an attractive library with quality resources, the Woods Cross High School Media Center periodically evaluates its materials for the purpose of removing and or replacing any materials from the collection that do not meet its standards. Materials are selected for weeding for the following reasons: outdated or inaccurate information, poor condition, encourages negative stereotypes or biases, is superseded by more current information, or it is not being used by teachers or students. Weeded materials will be processed as per District Guidelines.
All donations must be made through the Davis Education Foundation (Foundation). In donating through the Foundation, the donor may identify the specific school or schools the donor wishes to receive the book(s) materials.
School-level Advisory Committee and Collection Evaluation Committee:
The Woods Cross High School Library has in place a school-level Library Advisory committee and a Collection Evaluation Committee that consists of no less than five members. These are under the direction of the school principal and chaired by the library media teacher. Committee members represent an equitable cross-section of school community stakeholders that may include an administrator, department chair/or grade level teacher, parent representative, and student representative where appropriate. These committees provide input, promote library programs, and may assist in challenges to materials at the school level. School Library Media Guidelines and Procedures Davis School District
