Non-Public School Textbook

Policy and Instructions

Policy on Lending of Textbooks for Non-Public School Students

West Warwick Public Schools shall accept orders for textbooks for non public students each year only within the posted dates in order for the district to assure receipt in time for the start of school. The only obligation the district has is to provide textbooks, not cash reimbursements.

Any person who fails to order their books during that time may order later but will be required to wait for the books to arrive. No refunds of purchases will be allowed. In addition, any person who chooses to purchase books at the school, or any books required by the schools that are not on the state approved list will not be eligible for reimbursement from the West Warwick School Department.

Parents/Guardians ordering books beyond our posted period must sign a statement acknowledging their understanding and acceptance that the book(s) not in stock will not be ordered.

It is the responsibility of the borrower to return the book(s) undamaged, or pay for restitution.

Borrowers must return textbooks at the end of the school year. Failure to do so will jeopardize further lending of books.
