CANCELLED From Recruiting to Mentoring: Transformative Affiliate Event Marriott Marquis San Francisco
Yerba Buena Salon 04
Description :

School library staffing around the country currently faces a wide range of challenges, from systems facing a shortage of credentialed candidates to other systems where school library positions have been eliminated. Additionally, licensure requirements vary widely from state to state and impact university preparation and school hiring decisions. As a result, school libraries may be left unstaffed or staffed by paraprofessionals or others unprepared for the challenges facing twenty-first century school libraries. How do we prepare new “leaders to transform teaching and learning” in this context? How and where should we be recruiting these leaders? These are issues facing school library supervisors and university preparation programs, yet they have significant implications for all K-12 education stakeholders concerned with preparing students who are workplace and college ready. Faced with these challenges, school systems and universities are exploring innovative paths to the recruitment, preparation and support of school library staff. In this session a panel of district library supervisors, state leaders, and library school faculty will share perspectives on the issue, strategies to identify and prepare library candidates, and highlight innovative efforts to prepare a new generation of school librarians who will be leaders in the transformation of teaching and learning.

The panel of district library supervisors and library school faculty will share perspectives on the issue, strategies to identify and prepare library candidates, and highlight innovative efforts to prepare a new generation of school librarians.
