*Implementing the Common Core State Standards: The Role of the School
Librarian*

Please find linked below *Implementing the Common Core State Standards: The
Role of the School Librarian* released October 31stand distributed at the
recent American Association of School Librarians (AASL) Conference to all
attendees. This Action Brief for school librarians is a *starting point*,
designed to increase awareness of the standards, create a sense of urgency
around their implementation, and provide these stakeholders — who are faced
with dramatically increased expectations in the context of fewer resources
— with a deeper understanding of the standards and their role in
implementing the standards. Achieve, in partnership with the American
Association of School Librarians, released this with support from the
MetLife Foundation.



Excellent examples are provided throughout the document which paint a
picture for school librarians and other stakeholders in your schools what
the potential role for school librarians can and should be in regard to
implementation of the CCSS and the change in school culture needed to
effect that change.
