How can school librarians support Future Ready Schools®(FRS)? The Future Ready Librarians (FRL) program responds to this challenge by identifying ways librarians can lead, teach, and support personalized student learning. The FRL framework is based on research-based components used by FRS.
This webinar will look at how teacher librarians can cultivate partnerships within the school and local community (families and caregivers, nonprofit organizations, government agencies, public and higher education libraries, businesses, etc.) to promote engagement and a lifelong learning process.
Librarians, district leaders, and all educators are invited to participate in this webinar to learn more about the FRL program and how these librarian leaders cultivate community partnerships to make a difference in their library, school community, and for the students with whom they work every day. Presenters also will answer questions submitted by online viewers.
