     Textbook Loan Program
    Private & Parochial Schools 
    Dear White Plains Resident Families:

    The White Plains Public Schools has changed their protocols for ordering books for our resident students attending a Private or Parochial School.  All Private and Parochial Schools are encouraged to utilize the new on-line ordering system with ERIE BOCES.  We have sent out this information to all our participating schools. 

    On the next page, you will determine if your school participates in the Erie Boces program or does not participate, and follow the procedures.       

    For the families attending schools that will NOT participate in this program, the parent is then responsible to submit the required forms which is now on our website under the NYS Textbook Loan Program.  The district is obliged to help with the cost of your child’s textbooks and workbooks. Summer or discretionary reading materials are NOT inclusive of this process.

    The books will be secured either new or used from the district’s inventory.  When the books have been ordered and arrive, you will be contacted to pick up the books at Education House, 5 Homeside Lane, White Plains.  At the end of the school year, you are responsible to return ALL Books, excluding workbooks, to Education House, 5 Homeside Lane, White Plains.  If a book is damaged or lost, the parent or guardian will be responsible for replacing the book as new.

    We cannot proceed with your order until ALL forms are completed and authorized using the forms below.

    Thank you for your cooperation.
