About the Media Center
The mission of the Library Media program is to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information. This mission is accomplished by:
- Providing intellectual and physical access to materials in all formats
- Providing instruction to foster competence and stimulate interest in reading, viewing, and using information and ideas
- Working with other educators to design learning strategies to meet the needs of individual students
Media Center Use Class Groups
Faculty members are encouraged to schedule a visit to the Library Media Center in conjunction with a planned lesson or project. We are happy to join in the goal setting for objectives, procedures, activities and resources for the unit. There is a collaboration form to fill out with the Media Specialists to ensure the best use of time and effort.
Substitute teachers (other than long-term) are discouraged from sending or bringing students to the Media Center.
Individuals It is mandatory that each student have a properly filled out and signed Library Pass to come to the Media Center for any reason. Lunch time use requires a fully completed pass, also. Either the 5th or 6th period teacher needs to sign the pass giving permission to the student to miss class/lunch to visit the Media Center. Any student without such documentation will be sent back to his/her point of origin.
