Do you have a mission and vision statement for your school library? 

Something that states the purpose of your library and gives your team a shared understanding of your destination and goals? 

If you do, please share it here on this Padlet so we can use great examples to create our school library mission and vision statements too.

Raising Readers to Leaders, One Page at a Time

On May 31 at 12:00pm EST, there is a very special Future Ready Schools webinar that you won't want to miss.  

In the webinar Raising Readers to Leaders, One Page at a Time, the members of the Val Verde USD leadership team will share how they use the five-step FRS planning process to create their district's FRS action plan.  They will describe the process used during their two years of intense planning and collaboration with various departments within the district, along with input from parent groups. Through this systematic research-based process, they created a dynamic plan that puts their students first and provides them with opportunities to acquire twenty-first-century career skills that will carry them into the future.

I can't wait to hear their story and gain lots of knowledge and tips from this amazing team.
