These resources correspond to the “Federal Funds for School Librarians” workshop given at the AkLA conference, March 12th, 2016.
ESSA will be fully implemented in the 2017-18 school year. ESSA federal and state guidance are only beginning to be written. This information represents one interpretation of the legislation.
There is nothing in ESSA that requires school library funding.
It only provides opportunities.
It’s up to you to stay informed, stay involved, and let your district administration know what you can do for all students!
