    From the Ingraham Counseling Office:

    SENIORS with FINES from previous schools. Please contact the elementary, middle school or high school librarian of the school where the fee comes from to see what to do to about it. If you opt for #3 or #4 options below, please let the librarian know that this is how you will “pay” the fine if they are agreeable. Please note that only the school librarian where the fine had incurred can remove this fine.

    Current options for paying fine(s) are:

    • Pay for the book--parent can pay online in SchoolPay.
    • Replace the lost book with the same book.
    • “Read” the book off – If you are unable to replace a lost book or pay for it, then this is the preferred way to deal with the fine. To determine how much you would need to read or work (option #4) use the following calculation. Rate of pay is equal to minimum wage so you would take the value of the book and divide by 12 (since $12.00 dollars is the current minimum wage) and that would give you the number of hours of reading/work that you need to do to replace the book.
    • Work off the book—see option #3 on how long you need to work.
    With options #3 and #4 students need to bring a note from an adult (or the adult sends an email to the librarian) saying what they read, how long they read, and how many pages they read if they were reading a physical book. The reading must take place outside of school hours. When the note is received, the fine is forgiven.
