BEDFORD COUNTY, Va. – If your kids go to Bedford County Public Schools, you’ll soon be able to keep an eye on what they’re reading.
Starting this fall, you’ll receive automatic email notifications when your child checks out a book.
The school library website will also have more detailed information about the books so you can stay informed.
In addition, students in grades six through 12 will be given a teacher syllabus with assigned readings, along with a consent form for parents to sign.
BCPS has made this decision in response to parents challenging certain books in the schools’ public libraries.
