To use New York State and local school library program assessment data and tools to inform decisions regarding curriculum, instruction, and assessment for the improvement of student learning and achievement.
We request the creation of an "Exemplary School Library Media Program” web page on the School Administrators’ channelof NYSED Website with a list of resourcesfor administrators to support the development of a strong school library program.
Our recommendation is for NYLA/SSL, SLSA, NYSED, and graduate library school program representatives to form a task force to curate a comprehensive list of supporting documents and tools.
We request the revision of BEDS (Question 21 – Library Program) to reflect current practices to provide an accurate snapshot of school libraries throughout NYS that is easy to access, analyze and interpret online to demonstrate the impact of the school library on student learning.
Our recommendation is for NYLA/SSL, SLSA, NYSED, and graduate library school program representatives to form a task force to revise the BEDS question accordingly.
We request an evaluation and revision of the Essential Elements on the SLMPE Rubric to reflect current practices in school library programs including Common Core Learning Standards and the Empire State Information Fluency Continuumand to develop a tool kit to support the implementation of SLMPE across NYS school libraries.
Our recommendation is for NYLA/SSL, SLSA, NYSED, and graduate library school program representatives to form a task force accomplish these tasks.
“Students need to use the skills of
inquiry to learn.” -ESIFC
We request the Empire State Information Fluency Continuum be prominent and accessible on Engage NY, as well as on the newly developed Exemplary School Library Program webpage of the Administrators’ channel of NYSED's website.
