Library Program Curriculum Overview
Council Rock School District’s Library Program provides all students with the tools they need to become strategic, collaborative, and independent learners in the 21st Century. Our program promotes critical thinking and lifelong enjoyment of reading and discovery. Serving a broad range of readers and learners, it is our responsibility to provide materials for all members of our school community.
The Program is based on the Common Beliefs of our National Standards:
1. The school library is a unique and essential part of a learning community
2. Qualified school librarians lead effective school libraries
3. Learners should be prepared for college, career, and life
4. Reading is the core of personal and academic competency
5. Intellectual freedom is every learner's right
6. Information technologies must be appropriately integrated and equitably available
Library K-6: The elementary (K-6) school library-media curriculum is taught during regularly scheduled library specials classes and through collaboration with classroom teachers.
Library 7-8: Because of flexible scheduling, the middle school library-media curriculum is totally integrated with other curriculum subject areas. Middle school librarians collaborate with all subject area teachers to implement the library-media curriculum.
Library 9-12: Because of flexible scheduling, the high school library-media curriculum is totally integrated with other curriculum subject areas. High school librarians collaborate with all subject area teachers to implement the library-media curriculum.
