Improving School Librarian Evaluation (Association for Educational Communications and Technology/School Media and Technology Division)

In the State of Georgia, a consortium of school librarianshipleaders collaborated to develop the School Librarian Evaluation Instrument(SLEI), based on guidelines from the American Association of School Librarians(AASL). The SLEI clarifies the school librarian role for school librarians andadministrators.The SLEI was piloted with six schools in Cobb County Schools(Georgia) during the ’16-’17 school year, and fully implemented in all schoolsduring ’17-’18. Through partnerships with Dr. Phyllis Snipes, the SLEIConsortium, the Cobb County Schools HR department, and the Cobb Media LeadersTeam, the SLEI implementation has helped library media specialists andevaluators better understand the impact of library media programs on studentsuccess. The panelists will share their perspectives on the need for theinstrument, its implementation in Georgia school districts, and the futureplans for the SLEI.
