Mission Statement

Our mission is to: 

  • To use and provide services, resources, instruction, collaboration, and innovation to empower students and faculty to become life-long and information-literate learners 

  • To provide an inviting environment in which students and staff become learners capable of accessing, evaluating, applying and sharing information independently

Library Access Information

Escambia County Public Schools has implemented a new process that allows parents to choose their student's level of access to school library collections. Beginning May 1st, a parent may log into the Focus Parent Portal and choose their student's level of library access.

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 interlibrary loan as well as classroom libraries. 

Limited: My student may check out books 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.  This selection will give the parent an opportunity to provide clarifying comments on the materials that may be accessed by their student.  Students with this selection will not have access to classroom libraries and digital library collections. 

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

Parents of Middle School students will have an additional form to opt-in for young adult titles in the middle school library collections. Middle School students without this permission will not be able to check out Young Adult titles.

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

If you choose Unlimited, you do not need to complete the form.
