Oakland Tech provides one textbook per subject to students at the beginning of the year. All books are to be returned at the end of the year. Students must return the book title and book number that they were issued. It is the responsibility of the student to return books once they are no longer needed.
Students should never leave textbooks in the classroom!
Students will be held financially responsible for every book that is not returned. Students with outstanding book debts will have to pay the debt before registering for classes the following year. The book room is located in the basement near the cafeteria, ext 174.
Tech has a limited number of hall lockers. Students are assigned a locker by the Treasurer on a first-come basis at registration and at the beginning of the school year if any are available. Students are not permitted to share lockers. Do not share your combination with others and refrain from putting valuable items (cell phones, purses, wallets, etc.) in your locker. Personal locks are not permitted on lockers and will be removed if used. P.E. locks, which must be used on P.E. lockers, will be distributed and collected by P.E. teachers. There is a $7 charge for any lock that is not returned. Tech is not responsible for lost or stolen items. Students must make sure that their locker is secure before they leave. Please contact Ms. Rosemary Whisenston, Tech’s Treasurer, if you have any questions or concerns about the lockers.
Students must dress for physical education and dance classes daily. Students may wear plain blue shorts and a plain white T-shirt. Dance students must wear all-black clothing. Tech gym clothes may also be purchased at registration. Payment must be in CASH or MONEY ORDER ONLY— no checks. The price ranges from $20-$30, depending on the size. Not wearing PE uniforms can result in a suit cut or a grade change.
