Bookshelf Digital eLibrary Subscription - Action Needed
As a district, we have subscribed annually to Bookshelf. This has provided all students with unlimited, simultaneous access to any text in the collections, Yellow through Purple. This year, we have decided to provide each school with choice as to whether you want to continue your Bookshelf Subscription or opt out and receive a proportionate distribution ($4.00 per student) for subscribing to authentic eLibraries.
Please take a few moments to complete the attached form to provide input on what you want for your school.
Please contact Courtney Lough if you have any questions or need any support with the decision making process.
