  • 2. ESSENTIAL QUESTIONS:
    What is the purpose of school?
    Should school districts provide a space that students can keep and access their work from anywhere (a virtual portfolio of their time in the district)?
    What structures need to change to support students in the quest for knowledge?
    What policies need to evolve?
    What does your district/school's strategic plan reflect?
    Is it sustainable?
    Can we do a better job evaluating what ‘literate’ means today?
    What motivates students?
    How can your district and schoolhouse build strong family & community engagement? What strategies are currently employed?
    Do you have a system that allows for easy, extensive, and rapid replication of practices that are working?
    What model of support is in place to make it scalable?
    What do you want your children to leave school knowing?
    How will you know your district / school is moving in the right direction?

    Coalition Vision
    Washington Coalition for School Libraries and Information Technology (WCS-Lit)
    Full-time certified teacher-librarian in every school
    Fully-funded
    library materials and technology resources
    The Washington Coalition for School Libraries and Information Technology (WCSLit) envisions a future where every public school or small district in Washington state is served by a full-time, certified teacher-librarian who manages a fully-funded library and technology resource collection. The coalition looks to a future where students from across the state have the same access to technology, the same chance for literacy, and the same opportunity to receive a world-class education. It is our hope that Washington state standards for library and information technology education become the benchmark for library and information technology instruction across the nation. 
    Equitable access to technology, literacy, and opportunity
    WA State LIT education standards become a benchmark
