INFORMATIONAL

TO: Division Superintendents
FROM: Paul D. Stapleton
Superintendent of Public Instruction
SUBJECT: Update on Video Library
This is to advise you that the Department of Education is 
updating its Video Library registration data to ensure 
your schools have continued access to our video 
resources.  We are asking each of your schools to return 
a simple registration form, indicating changes from our 
current records.  We also are contacting any schools not 
currently registered with us to provide them with a brief 
description of our services and a registration form.

We have made a change in our video duplication procedures 
in an effort to make the use of the duplication center 
more convenient for your schools.  It is no longer 
necessary to provide a blank tape for duplication, we 
will supply the tape.  The new fees for public schools, 
which include the tape, are:  $5 for the first program 
and $2 for each additional program on the same tape.  For 
your information, we also provide these services to 
private schools and other educational agencies.  
Nonpublic school fees are:  $8 for the tape and first 
program and $5 for each additional program on the same 
tape.

The fees for the Video Loan Library remain unchanged, at 
$2 per title for public schools and $5 for all others.

The library is continually being upgraded with new 
material.  This is particularly true of the Driver 
Education section, which was previously administered by 
the Division of Motor Vehicles.

For additional information refer to the Department of 
Education home page, www.pen.k12.va.us or call Jon 
Petersen at (804) 225-2973.
