3 DCSD libraries awarded the CDE's "Highly Effective Library Program" distinction
Four DCSD Teacher-Librarians Receive
Highly Effective School Library Program Status
Tracie King from Acres Green Elementary School, Pete Vincelette from Mountain Ridge Middle School, and Stephanie Meurer and Jennifer Milstead from Sierra Middle School have been recognized by the state of Colorado as having Highly Effective School Library Programs. To earn this recognition an application process requires that school teacher-librarians provide evidence to meet 21 criteria on an evaluation rubric. A licensed teacher librarian that collaborates with classroom teachers with instruction and assessment to integrate 21st century skills and technology is an integral piece to receive this award.
Douglas County School District now has 6 Highly Effective School Library Programs as these three schools join, Rocky Heights Middle School, Ranch View Middle School, and Thunderridge High School.
