School Library Policy Statement. Revised.
Manitoba Dept. of Education and Training, Winnipeg. Instructional Services Branch.
A school library program is a basic component of education for all students. Manitoba Education and Training (MET) presents this policy statement to clarify the roles of the provincial government and the school districts in providing school library services. MET will provide policy and guideline documents to recommend standards, and funding through basic categorical grants. The department will further monitor implementation of programs and provide curriculum and program development consultation, as well as inservice education for administrators, teachers, and librarians. The province will maintain centralized materials and assist in the formation of an interlibrary network. The school divisions and districts will develop programs that meet standards defined by MET, implement and assess these programs, provide professional development, and ensure program and financial accountability. Two appendixes contain a glossary and a statement of learning goals for young people. (SLD)
