Parental Choice for Books

At Lake County Schools, we believe that reading is essential to learning and we have stocked our school media centers with age-appropriate books, periodicals and other resources that educate, inform, enrich and entertain.  

But we understand that every item may not be right for every student or family. Therefore, we have provided a way for you, as a parent, to easily see which resources are available in our media centers and to let us know if any of those resources should be off limits for your child. Please only complete the form if there is a title you wish to have your student prohibited from reading.
