ESSA for School Librarians

Find out the most current information on the new ESSA legislation and how it directly impacts school librarians. The workshops will: * include the most current information on developments at the Federal level and work through the sections of ESSA that can be directly linked to the school librarian/library program; * connect ESSA language to school librarian’s role; and * discuss current state work with recommendations for opportunities at state and local levels to ensure the ‘effective school library program’ language in ESSA. The hands-on small group work will aid in identifying stakeholders, building coalitions, message crafting, and elevator speech development. Join Anita and Pam as they present both the state and national perspective on ESSA and how it impacts your school library program.
