The Spartan Media Center is open daily from 8:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. The Media Center will be closed during FCAT testing and faculty meetings.
Students are permitted to check out two books at a time for a period of two weeks. A five cent fine is applied on a daily basis when books become overdue.
You must have a yellow pass or a signed agenda to enter the Media Center. You are admitted into the Media Center to study, work on school assignments, access information on computers for class assigned work, read silently, practice on FCAT Explorer or take a Reading Counts quiz.
It's a privilege to have computers and to be able to use them as technological resources. Students are encouraged to use the computers in the Media Center, but are warned against misuse and inappropriate use. A signed Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) ensures that students comply. Computers are intended to be used for educational purposes ONLY.
Students who participate in the program, first take the Scholastic Reading Inventory (SRI) test. Results from this test give the student a lexile level or reading score. This reading score is used to match a student to a book. Once the student is done reading the book, he/she takes a Reading Counts (RC) quiz. Each book has a certain amount of points. If the student passes the RC quiz, then the points are awarded. Students who meet the 100 point challenge are invited to a celebration in May. In addition, awards and recognition are given to students with the highest number of points, at the end of each month and at the end of the year.
