Advocacy for Highly Effective School Library Programs in New Jersey Sticky

The New Jersey Library Association, along with partners, is actively advocating for New Jersey students to have the opportunity to improve literacy and build information literacy skills taught by a state certified school library media specialist.  These skills will prepare New Jersey Students for college and beyond.

Testimony before the Joint Committee on the Public Schools

On October 11th, 2016 Pat Tumulty, Executive Director of the New Jersey Library Association (NJLA) and James Keehbler, Chair of the NJLA School Libraries Taskforce were asked to give testimony about ESSA and school library programs in New Jersey to the Joint Committee on Public Schools.  We provided packets with statements from NJLA, VALE/NJACRL, examples of rules and regulations from other states, the NJ School Library Report and information about the Unlock Student Potential campaign and other relevant information.
