Director, School Library Programs
Coordinator II, Curriculum and Instruction
Our school libraries launch students into a world of new knowledge by providing instant access to exciting books, online resources, and emerging technologies. They provide equal opportunities to all students for learning.
Certified school librarians are an essential part of a school's faculty, partnering with educators to connect 21st Century learners with resources. They empower students to be critical thinkers, enthusiastic readers, and ethical users of information.
On May 27, 2010, the Oklahoma State Board of Education approved the Information Literacy PASS standards. Governor Brad Henry approved the change on June 21, 2010. The new Oklahoma standards are also the American Association of School Librarians' Standards for the 21st Century Learner. They address the increasingly complex nature of information and the skills our students need to succeed in the modern world.
