Library access 

Focus Form Available

May 1, 2023

Escambia County Public Schools has implemented a new process that allows parents to choose their student's level of access to school library collections. 

Unlimited: My student may have full access to check out grade and age appropriate books that are available at their grade (elementary, middle, high) school library to include same grade level inter library loan as well as classroom libraries. 

Limited: My student may check out book from the library media center, but there is content that I would like my student to not have access to in the library media center including the classroom library. 

No Access: My student is not permitted to check books out of the library media center or use classroom library books. 

To make a decision other than Unlimited, log into the Focus Student Information System and complete the Library Access Form.
