Student Class Schedules

Student Email Information

On June 6, we emailed student email credentials to the primary parent.  Parents will need this information to purchase textbooks.  Be sure to check your spam/junk folder if you do not see it in your inbox.  Please email Mrs. Rosanne Grigoletti if you do not have this email by 3:00 PM that day.

Classes that do not Require Textbook from eTechCampus

Some classes have State Textbooks, which are lent to students for the school year.  Others have e-books for which the classroom teacher distributes licenses.  Some classes do not require a textbook.  In all of these cases, those textbooks will not be listed when you purchase books from eTechCampus.

  • Accounting (State Textbook)
  • English 2 (all levels) (State Textbook)
  • English 3 AP (State Textbook)
  • English 4 AP (State Textbook)

Three Ways to Purchase

Families will have the option to choose between the  “Physical Book Rental Bundle“, “Textbook Bundle” or “Use Course Selection” methods.  The bundles are the most affordable option.  Rental books offer up to 50% savings from purchasing a new copy.

Physical Book Rental Bundle:  Consists of all physical textbooks which are rented and returned to eTechCampus at the end of the school year.  When purchasing a bundle, eTechCampus will automatically select the books for the courses your child will be taking.

eBook & Physical Combo Rental Bundle:  Consists of eBooks for all texts that are available in electronic format and rented physical books for the remaining texts.  Rented texts are returned to eTechCampus at the end of the school year.  When purchasing a bundle, eTechCampus will automatically select the books for the courses your child will be taking.  (Clarification:  If a text is available in electronic format, you will only receive it as an ebook – you will not receive a physical textbook as well.)

Use Course Selection:  Use your student’s class schedule to purchase physical or electronic books for each of your courses.  This method can also be used to purchase supplies such as locks and goggles for science courses.

To Order a Textbook Bundle:

To get the best idea of how purchasing the textbook bundle will work,
we recommend you watch a short tutorial.  Then, follow the steps below.

  1. Click on “Textbook Bundle”.
  2. Read through the information & policies, and choose a grade level & bundle type, & click “Add to Cart“.
  3. Review cart and click “Proceed to Checkout“.
  4. Sign in with student’s PCHS School Email and password.  This information was emailed to you.  Please do not enter the parent name or another email address; this will cause problems for your student when accessing books.
    Click “Sign In to Continue“.
  5. You will then proceed through checkout.
  6. Click “See Contents” on the right side to see what books are included in the bundle, and what type of book (new, rental, e-book, etc.).
  7. Follow the prompts for payment to complete your purchase.

REMINDER: You must purchase bundles for one student at a time. This ensures that the proper textbook bundle is ordered. If you have more than one student, please repeat this entire process, using the proper student credentials in step 4 above.

To Purchase by Course:

  1. Click on “Use Course Selection”.
  2. Choose “2019-20 School Year” if necessary.
  3. Select all the courses for which you need books. Refer to the student schedule that was emailed to you.
  4. Click “Continue” when all desired courses are selected.
  5. For each course selected, choose the book in the preferred format (new, rental, ebook, etc.). Be sure to pay attention to which items are required, and to those that you may already own from a previous class (e.g., Bible, goggles, etc.).
  6. When you are finished, click on “Continue”.
  7. Follow the prompts for payment to complete your purchase.

REMINDER: If you are purchasing ebooks, be sure to purchase for each of your students separately. That will ensure that each student will be able to access his/her proper ebooks from the eTechCampus site.
