Betting on People: Strategies for Getting and Keeping the Best People in our School Libraries (AASL SPVS) Discussion/Interest group Hyatt Regency Chicago
Columbus AB
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?

The AASL Supervisors’ is hosting a discussion group to hear from a number of voices across the country about innovative practices. Using a World Café format, discussion leaders will briefly summarize
innovative practices with which they are familiar and lead a 10 minute discussion with a small group.
The groups would move from table to table and each participant will hear about and discuss several topics.
