  • Teen Opt-out

    Creekland Media Center

    Teen Mature Opt-out Form

    The Creekland Middle School actively collects materials that support the Gwinnett County AKS and the Common Core. All books and materials are approved by the Media Committee that consists of teacher and parent representatives. With that in mind, we select materials that support our diverse student population with a variety of reading interests, and levels. Our areas of collection include:

    Upper Elementary (Grades 3-5)

    Tween (Grades 6-8)

    Teen Mature (Grades 8-10)

    Our teen mature fiction collection includes language, themes or controversial subjects such as human rights violations, issues related to sexuality or other teen situations that are appropriate for the mature student or advanced reader who feels that he or she is ready for books that transition into high school libraries. The Media Center uses yellow barcodes to identify these books that are suitable for upper Middle School readers. Our Media Center strongly encourages parents to talk to their child about this subject and agree on what you feel appropriate as reading material.

    If you do NOT want your child to have access to Teen Mature (8-10 grade reading material) please email Ms. Card at carrie.card@gcpsk12.org . You can also return this form if you do not want your child to have access to check out these books. We will use discretion at the circulation desk and recommend alternative books for your child to read.
