Non-public School Students and Parents

Text Book Loan Program

The Mount Pleasant Central School District has standardized our textbook loan program procedures for all resident students attending a Private or Parochial (non-public) School.  The district will provide textbooks and/or workbooks used as primary sources of study material for New York State or local curriculum.  Summer or discretionary reading materials are not inclusive of this process.  

The parent or guardian of each student is responsible for submitting the required District Textbook Request Form.  Please submit one form for each child attending a non-public school.  All requests must be submitted by June 30 of the year preceding the school year of attendance at the non-public school.  Look at our instructions for completing textbook loan request for more information.

The books will be secured either new or used from the district’s inventory.  The parent/guardian will be contacted when the books are available for pick up at Mt Pleasant CSD, District Office, 825 Westlake Drive, Thornwood.

At the end of the school year, you are responsible to return all books, excluding workbooks, to Mt Pleasant CSD, District Office, 825 Westlake Drive, Thornwood by no later than June 30.  If a book is damaged or lost, the parent or guardian will be responsible for replacing the book as new.  Failure to return any book on time will result in the prohibition of student eligibility for textbook loans in subsequent years.

We cannot proceed with your order until the form is completed in its entirety.
