  • Assessing Fees For Lost Or Damaged Textbooks Damage Fee Policy                                                                                                                                                 
    Damage Fees: The State does not provide guidelines for assessing costs for lost or damaged textbooks.  Therefore, the policy for assessing damage fees has been established by the Cumberland County School System.

    Lost Book: 100% of the current price will be charged.
    Damaged Book, Unusable:  Full price will be charged based on replacement needs. If the spine is off, you may charge a rebinding fee.
    Damaged Book, Usable: The amount collected will be assessed by the teacher based on the condition at the time the textbook was issued versus returned.  Assessments will vary depending on the level of destruction incurred.


    The school administration shall establish contact with the parent or guardian if any payment is due for damages.
