Reserving Items from Online Catalog

If you are reserving items from the CSC Alexandria online catalog, please watch the video linked on the right hand side of this page. It explains how to log in to your account and how to make a reservation once you have found an item you want to reserve.

The hardest part is getting the correct date range. When the reservation calendar is open, click the date you want your reservation to begin. Without letting go of your “click”, drag through the calendar to the end date for your reservation. The word “New” should appear on the start date, end date and all dates in between if your reservation has been made correctly.

Fridays are the only options for start/end dates due to the fact that the CSC is housed at Soldotna Prep School. Friday is the day the district truck comes to SoPrep, thus anything leaving or returning to the CSC will happen on a Friday. Please plan according when reserving items. Thank You!

CSC Moves to SoPrep

The Curriculum Support Center (CSC) which was formerly known as the District Media Center (DMC) has moved to Room 7 at Soldotna Prep School. Karla Barkman is taking over the management of the CSC collection at its new home.

Cindy Nagle, who has managed the collection for years, will be in a new position for the 2016-2017 school year. Thank you Cindy, for all you have done for KPBSD staff working at the CSC.

The reservation/delivery process will change slightly for CSC materials. Reservations can still be made from the online catalog but they will only be shipped on Fridays as that is the warehouse pickup day for Soldotna schools. Reserved items will be delivered to each site on the delivery day for that school.

Due to the move of materials, the reservation system will not be up and running until September. Please check back for updates.

Feel free to contact me, Karla Barkman, with questions.

Telephone: 260-2379 / Email: kbarkman@kpbsd.k12.ak.us

Ten-year-old Auggie Pullman, who was born with extreme facial abnormalities and was not expected to survive, goes from being home-schooled to entering fifth grade at a private middle school in Manhattan, which entails enduring the taunting and fear of his classmates as he struggles to be seen as just another student.
