Learning Standards & Program Guidelines Implementation Toolkit

Gaining Support

planning guide coverNow that you have evidence that your adoption of the AASL learning standards supports local, state, and national initiatives, the next step is to share those connections with stakeholders. Helping your colleagues and decision makers understand your robust vision of learning in school libraries is important. Keep in mind that many parents, staff members, administrators, and board members may have grown up in a time when libraries were merely book warehouses and librarians were often primarily guardians of those warehouses. An ongoing series of conversations, backed up by your own behaviors and practices, will be necessary to turn around those outdated notions.
