We welcome feedback about our library books and materials. If a student or parent/guardian has concerns about a book or material in our school libraries, they should first discuss the material with their school principal.
If, after discussing their concerns with the school principal, the student or parent/guardian is not satisfied with the response, the individual may submit a formal request for review by a GUSD Library Review Committee.
Library Review Committees
Each year, GUSD convenes Elementary and Secondary Library Review Committees to review unvetted new and contested books and materials for use in our school libraries. Formal complaints about library books and materials will be submitted to the appropriate Library Review Committee for evaluation.
Each committee includes:
Parent/guardian committee members are selected randomly. A request for volunteers is sent to all parents/guardians every August. One volunteer member is randomly selected from each high school cluster area (Crescenta Valley, Glendale, Hoover). Student members are volunteers from the GUSD Student Advisory Council.
