I work in a High School library and am the person in charge of dealing with overdues. At the moment I send lists to homeroom teachers, go to homerooms every Friday to physically collect items (most of the time they're in the kids lockers) and every term send letters home to parents. However, apparently according to my boss this isn't enough and I should be using my initiative more. I was just wondering if anyone has any ideas of other ways I could go about getting items back. We can't charge or withhold anything like reports, according to my boss. I just thought I'd try and get some ideas, as google mainly brings up the charges idea.
Thanks in advance!
