FSK Media Center Policies:
FSK media center operates within a flexible schedule – we are open during the entire school day and 45 minutes before and after school is in session.
Before school convenes, students may use the center as a place to come together and relax, talk with friends, listen to music or complete homework.
During the school day students may ask teacher permission and receive a pass to come to the media center time to access the computers and research resources to complete projects, select reading materials, etc. We host a number of whole classes daily by offering access to computers and printers and well as research instruction and guidance.
We provide an atmosphere of focused study but certainly allow and encourage students to collaborate on assignments. We do not allow food and drink in the center. There is no rough housing or disruptive behavior.
To monitor use of the center and maintain a record of how our center is being used, we require individual students coming into the center to sign in upon their arrival as well as present a pass for entry. Students must also sign out if they have to leave the center during their indicated time.
