Advocacy Resources

The time to advocate for your library is before you face budget or program cuts. These resources are designed to support school librarians’ proactive efforts to keep your effective school library program whole, and growing. Many of the resources are shared from the American Association of School Librarians’ (AASL) advocacy website. AASL is a division of the American Library Association. Used with permission.

School Library Program Standards 2018

The revised standards establish guidelines for school library programs at five levels: distinguished, accomplished, proficient, developing, and improvement needed. Supplemental Resources are being developed and will be posted on the TSLAC website when completed.
