The new policy takes effect January 17, 2023.
If you would like for your student to access the Adult collection appropriate for high school, please visit the parent portal (go to Library Option) and select opt-in. If you do not want your student to access the Adult collection, no action is needed. Your student will have default access to the Juvenile and Young Adult collections of books unless you have opted your student out of the library. If you have any questions, please contact your campus librarian. If you need assistance with your parent portal login, please contact CFISD Customer Care Center at 281-897-4357.
The new policy defines books in the adult collection as such:
Adult Collection books are suggested for readers beginning at sixteen (16) years of age. These books can be fiction or nonfiction, educational, and entertaining. The books typically have older teens or adult characters and are written in any genre (historical, crime, romance, etc.). This collection may also include graphic novels, which are similar to comic books because they use sequential art to tell a story. Unlike comic books, they are usually standalone stories with more complex plots. Plot lines in this collection may include topics relevant to an older reader, such as family dynamics and conflicts, navigating peer relationships, social geopolitical issues, career exploration, coping with loss and personal struggles, and sexuality.
If you have any questions, please contact our principal, Mr. Smith, or our campus librarian, Ms. Keene.
