Time Table

  • If you cannot be here to get your own textbooks, you may send a proxy in your place. The proxy MUST have your student ID card. There will be NO exceptions to this. We will NOT be handing out any textbooks early, and we will not be handing out any textbooks late.You MUST have your student ID card. If you do not have this year’s ID card, you may use an old one. If you do not have an ID card, you will need to purchase one from Mrs. Thomas in the Bookkeeping Office for $5.
  • You MUST have a clear account. This means no overdue library books or textbooks or any fines.

If you have any questions, please email Catherine Grijalva (

Textbook Checkout Policy

Textbook checkout policy is consistent across the San Ramon Valley Unified School district high schools. During the school year textbooks may only be checked out if the student is currently taking the class. Textbooks are available for use while the student is in the DVHS library. Most textbooks are available for in-library use in the Contra Costa library at Dougherty Station in San Ramon.

Here are some other ways you can access/purchase the textbooks used at DVHS:

  • Check the SRVUSD Adopted Textbook list. This link provides the titles and ISBN codes of all of the textbooks by subject in the district.
  • Buy or rent your own copy of the textbooks at:
    •  Click to see pictures of most of our textbooks.
    • eBay
  • Use the textbooks at the Contra Costa County Library. There are copies of almost all of our textbooks at Dougherty Valley Station. They can be used for up to two hours while in the library. Click  Booklist  to see what is available.
