Location:      Utah State Board of Education, 250 East 500 South, SLC
Time:             12:30-3:30 PM

Your Utah Educational Library Media Association (UELMA) is partnering with the American Association of School Librarians (AASL), in collaboration with the American Library Association's Washington Office and Office for Library Advocacy to offer a complimentary workshop on the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).  AASL leaders will facilitate the session which will include:
*          The most current information on developments at the Federal level and work through the sections of ESSA that can be directly linked to the school librarian/library program.
*          Connecting ESSA language to the school librarian's role.
*          Discussing current state work with recommendations for opportunities at state and local levels to ensure the effective school library program's language in ESSA.

This hands-on session will aid in identifying stakeholders, building coalitions, message crafting and elevator speech development.  While the content will be directly related to ESSA, the tools and exercise portion is advocacy for positioning school librarians in general as leaders for teaching and learning. Each participant will receive an ESSA handbooks.
