Parental Involvement

Parents are encouraged to be involved with the NMS Library. 

JISD Board Policy specifies " The District shall focus on maximizing transparency with parents and community members while meeting student needs and providing enrichment opportunities with library materials. Parental involvement in library acquisition, maintenance, and campus activities is encouraged.

To support transparency and access for the school community, the District shall establish means for parents and the public to review holdings, including information about titles and how materials are assessed."

JISD Board Policy also states: "In general, a student is afforded the opportunity to self-select library materials as part of literacy development and the library program. District staff may assist a student in selecting library material; however, the ultimate determination of appropriateness remains with the student and parent. Parents are encouraged to communicate with the campus librarian and their child's teacher about special considerations regarding library materials self-selected by their student. In accordance with state law and administrative regulations, parents may select alternative library materials for their student... A parent's ability to exercise control over instruction and instructional resources, including library materials, extends only to his or her own child as set forth in Education Code Chapter 26."

  • Parents and students may log into their child's/own personal library account. By checking your STATUS, you can view your holds, charges, items out, history, and more. Instructions and links are here.
