Board Policy 6161 - Core Curriculum Resources

The Board of Education of Prince George’s County hereby establishes a policy which requires that students have access to appropriate core curricular resources for their course offering.

It is a time-honored tradition of the public schools of this County to extend the free use of textbooks and other similar study guides to pupils upon the express condition that such materials are returned in the same basic condition as issued, ordinary wear and tear excepted. Also, the proper use of textbooks and similar materials is part of the educational process.

It is expected that students will:

  1. Return such textbooks and other similar educational materials, as were originally furnished, to appropriate school personnel in a satisfactory condition, or
  2. Reimburse the school for damaged textbooks or other similar educational materials, or
  3. Reimburse the school for lost textbooks or similar educational materials at the cost of replacement for textbooks and other similar educational materials.
  4. Make other satisfactory arrangements with the principal concerning the textbooks or other similar educational materials.
