TAKS, TEA, CSCOPE….. We are driven by these extrinsic agencies, systems and accountabilities in the education world….. and so is the library!
Did you know that School Library Programs also have state standards that are mandated by the State of Texas? www.tsl.state.tx.us/ld/schoollibs/slsAdopted2005.doc
School Library Standards are Learner-Centered: S1: Teaching and Learning S2: Leadership and Management S3: Technology and Information Access S4: Library Environment S5: Connections to Community S6: Information Science and Librarianship
Tuloso-Midway Libraries are led by a team of certified librarians who focus on these core values: -Academic Achievement-Access for All-Reading-Lifelong Learning -Technology-Information Literacy-Innovation-Intellectual Freedom
The library is supposed to be the academic center of the school. We have come so far, but we still have a long way to go…and that is just to reach the “Acceptable” mark! There are still the goals of “Recognized” and “Exemplary” to be met so that our libraries can help our students be “Recognized” and “Exemplary”!
