ACRL-OR Supports School Library Programs

In a recent collaborative effort between the Oregon Association of School Libraries (OASL), the Oregon Library Association (OLA), and the Oregon chapter of the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL-OR), a task force formed to write a policy advisory letter to the Oregon Department of Education (ODE), regarding their implementation plan for ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act). All three organizations respectfully recommended to support school librarians as part of this plan.

ACRL-OR recognizes the role that school libraries play in student learning and success and in creating successful college students, and hope to see this reflected in our state’s implementation of ESSA. At this stage in the process, we believe that combining our support with OASL and OLA will provide the strongest message, but look forward to further supporting this effort from an academic library perspective in the future.  Please read the letter sent to the Deputy Superintendent of ODE in November 2016 here: http://www.olaweb.org/assets/Communications/2016-17_communications/oasllettertoode.pdf
