The library program is fully integrated into the educational program so that students, teachers, and school librarians become partners in learning.

Position Statement on Flexible Scheduling

This integration strengthens the teaching for learning process to insure students are active learners who guide and continually assess their learning process. Open access to a quality school library program is essential for students to develop the vital skills necessary to analyze, evaluate, interpret, and communicate information and ideas in a variety of formats. Inquiry skills are taught and learned within the context of the curriculum and may occur in the classroom, the library, or at home with 24/7 accessibility to a wide range of resources, technologies, and services.

The integrated library program philosophy requires an open schedule that includes flexible and equitable access to physical and virtual collections for staff and students. The PARENTS advocate for a library program that provides their child with access 24/7. Learning Standards & Common Core State Standards Crosswalk.
