This is a message from ITEM, asking for your input on the ESSA issues that will happen in your library! You always want YOUR voice heard in matters important to your work!!
If anyone would like to gather here at CMLE Headquarters prior to the St Cloud meeting on Oct 26, just let us know. We can meet here, have snacks to get fortified, and head over as a group. It could be a good opportunity to chat among ourselves about issues important here in CMLE, and how to best approach ESSA.
Please use the link from ITEM (below) to register for an event that is convenient for you!!
ITEM now needs YOUR help to shape our involvement. Beginning Wednesday, October 5th, MDE is hosting a round of listening tours to collect feedback on ESSA. It is imperative that school librarians, as major stakeholders, are actively involved in these listening tours.
