Connecting ESSA to School Libraries
Saturday, April 8, 10-11am on WebEx.
This workshop was designed by AASL to make certain that every state has the necessary information and tools to ensure that implementation of ESSA includes the critical component of school librarians in effective school library programs for teaching and learning. We will start with an overview at the federal level and end by equipping attendees with messaging and strategies to guarantee that when state, district or building level administrators think of ESSA they make the connection to school libraries. While this workshop is focused on ESSA and state plans it is really about how to develop a strategic advocacy plan that can be used long after the ESSA plans are finalized and that money allocated.
