A new North Carolina evaluation instrument for school library media coordinators was implemented Fall 2013. Many public school professionals feel the demonstration of Standard 1, “School library media coordinators demonstrate leadership,” is the most challenging of the five. Our diverse panel of experts will share their knowledge and viewpoints by discussing strategies for effectively meeting this standard. You are encouraged to submit questions for the panel prior to the summit. Please send them to Alan Bailey (firstname.lastname@example.org) with "Panel Discussion Question" in the subject line.
