Library Media Centers

The Clover Park School District library/media centers will be used to support and extend the classroom program of instruction. Each center will provide a broad range of instructional equipment and learning resources to support the school curriculum and meet the unique needs of students.

Each district library/media center will be staffed to assist teachers and students in the use of the collection, as well as in the completion of teacher and/or student assignments.  The library staff will assist students and teachers in securing a variety of resources which support student mastery of the essential academic learning requirements and the implementation of the district’s school improvement plan. Additionally, the library staff will collaborate as an instructional partner and information specialist to help all students meet the content goals in all subject areas, provide information, technology literacy instruction and assist students completing projects and assignments.

The superintendent will establish procedures for the selection of materials. Citizens who wish to express a concern about specific material included in the collection may do so according to the procedures outlined in Procedure 2021P, with the understanding that the criteria and rationale for reconsideration of library resources differs from the criteria and rationale for reconsideration of classroom/curricular instructional materials.
