    SLS COMMUNICATION COORDINATORS MEETING

    n order to ensure that school libraries throughout our region are supporting their district's goal of graduating College and Career-Ready students, one librarian representative from each district, appointed by the Superintendent, joins their colleagues four times a year to engage in collaborative professional development and informational sessions. These meetings are an essential way to focus on Common Core Learning Standards, relevant resources, curriculum development, primary resources and technology. There is no charge for this membership/service; the program is state mandated and supported, in part by New York State Aid.
