School Administrator’s Conference: On Demand

Increasing student success through effective school library programs

The Texas Library Association’s School Administrators Conference is a series for superintendents, principals, directors, and academic deans to come together and explore the connections between effective school library programs and student success. SAC is designed to inspire, inform, and change the way Texas schools leverage their libraries in order to engage students, support teachers, advance learning, and prepare well-rounded learners for the future. The series also provides an opportunity to recognize the positive impact of effective school library programs on student achievement, examine critical elements of successful library programs and provide supporting resources and materials.

These programs are available on demand for $19 each or $49 for all three.
