Washington County School District has Media Center Libraries in each school to support our student's learning within the school setting. Our libraries offer a wide range of learning resources at varying levels of difficulty and diverse viewpoints to meet the educational needs of students and teachers and support the educational mission of the School District.
The Washington County School Board (“School Board”) acknowledges the First Amendment principle that students have a right to access ideas through School Libraries and supports the acquisition and maintenance of materials that are educationally suitable for students.
Washington County School District supports the freedom of inquiry, including intellectual and academic freedom in that every student and teacher is able to both seek and receive information from all points of view. At the same time, Washington County School District is sensitive to the reality that a School Library primarily supports the equitable access to information and the education of minors and does not serve the general public.
