The primary objective of each school’s media center is to implement, enrich, and support the educational program of the school. The media center shall provide a wide range of educational media materials on all levels of difficulty with a diversity of appeal and the representation of different points of view.
The Spark at Indian Trails Middle School seeks to inspire and foster collaboration, connection, and creativity. With help from the Spark staff, all students will be able to access high-quality resources and effectively use ideas, information, and technology.
Policies and Procedures
All ITMS students are expected to exemplify the "Big Three": Do what is right, do your best, and treat others the way you want to be treated. Students are not asked to “be quiet” in the Spark but to simply respect the work of others and use a reasonable speaking voice. The Spark is a collaborative learning space. Students are required to work independently or with peers if they are visiting unaccompanied by a staff member.
Students have an unlimited number of checkouts. They are encouraged to check out as many materials as they need and can care for responsibly. Books are due two weeks from the checkout date and can be renewed as needed.
Students may borrow materials from other libraries in the district. Requests can be submitted to the media specialist.
- Students may purchase IDs in the Spark before school.
- Students wishing to purchase an ID during class must have a pass from a teacher. The cost is $5.00 with a lanyard, $4.00 without a lanyard.
- New students who are not present during the first school picture day may have their picture taken in the Spark and issued an ID at no cost.
Sunshine State Young Reader's Award Program
The Sunshine State Young Reader's Award Program (SSYRA) is a statewide reading program for students in grades 6–8.
The purpose of the SSYRA Program is to encourage students to read independently for personal satisfaction based on interest rather than just reading level. Students are encouraged to read books that are above, on, and below their tested reading level in order to improve their reading fluency and have a greater exposure to literature.
