Our mission, to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information, reflects the American Library Association's goal outlined in Information Power: Guidelines for School and Library Media Programs. This mission is accomplished:
By providing physical and electronic access to materials
By providing instruction to foster competence and stimulate interest in reading, viewing, and using information and ideas
By working with other educators to design learning strategies to meet the needs of individual students
Our libraries have adopted a collaborative approach to instruction. Together, the teacher librarian and the classroom or specials teacher plan and deliver Jeffco curriculum. This instructional partnership results in successful resource-based units that broaden the use of resources and promote information literacy.
