Book Purchase & Rental for 2018-19 School Year

Please read this information before ordering your students’ textbooks for 18-19 school year.

Important Dates for Ordering Textbooks

  • June 5:  (new date) eTechCampus bookstore opens online
  • June 30:  Freshmen schedules emailed to primary parent
  • July 15:  Last day to order e-books via the Combo Rental bundle or A la Carte.
  • July 16:  eTechCampus bookstore remains open, with only physical books available
  • August 3: Last day to order via eTechCampus to have your books for the first day of classes.

Student Class Schedules

On May 14, 2018  we emailed class schedules to the all to-be Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors.  The primary parent also received an emailed copy.  If you did not receive the emailed class schedule, check the e-locker on ParentPlus or contact Mrs. Laurie Ford

Next year’s freshmen will receive their Course Selection sheet in mid-May.  (The final class schedule will be emailed to parents at the end of June.)  At the top of  the Course Selection, you will see your student’s name, ID#, email and password.  You will need that email and password to purchase through eTechCampus.

Read the letter detailing the new timeline for student class schedules here.

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.  Click “Sign In to Continue“.  Please do not enter the parent name or another email address; this will cause problems for your student when accessing books.
  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 2018-19 School Year if necessary.
  3. Select all the courses for which you need books. Refer to the student schedule (or course selection sheet) 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.
