MENUMENU

Textbook Coordination Service

Through Questar III’s textbook coordination service for non-public schools, more than 1,200 students are served.  By pooling all our resources for the public school districts of Rensselaer, Columbia, and Greene Counties, Questar III’s non-public textbook loan program is an efficient and cost-effective way for public school districts to purchase and lend textbooks to those students attending non-public schools according to section 701 of the Education Law.

The Questar III Textbook Loan Program provides the following services:

  •  Collect all student applications for textbooks
  •  Distribute and collect all loaned textbooks at several convenient sites
  •  Purchase lower-cost used textbooks first
  •  Utilizes NYS contract pricing
  •  Order in bulk, for minimal shipping charges
  •  Maintain district inventory
  •  Collect fees for damaged or non-return textbooks
  •  Encourages non-public schools to retain titles for the minimum 5-year period, to avoid costly replacements
  •  Ensure appropriate documentation of students requesting second sets of textbooks
  •  Provides all necessary communication with students, parents, public schools, and non-public schools
