ABOUT THIS WEBINAR
How can school librarians support Future Ready Schools® (FRS)? Future Ready Librarians (FRL) respond to this challenge by identifying specific ways that librarians can lead, teach and support personalized student learning. The FRL framework is based on research-based components used by FRS. This webinar examined how librarians can support collaborative leadership by leading beyond the library. District and library leaders share how school librarians are extending their leadership beyond their libraries to benefit their schools and districts.
In Missouri’s Parkway School District, the FRL framework and Project Connect are guiding the work of the district as they reimagine existing library programs and make decisions about future directions. Focusing on each of these individual topics has given them great insight into leading beyond the library and what it means to be a librarian in the digital age.
In this webinar, Bill Bass and Kim Lindskog:
- Told their story and connection to one another as leaders within the district.
- Explained their district’s vision and strategic plan for digital learning to highlight the work they do together.
- Shared how they foster a culture of collaboration and innovation that empowers their teachers, learners and school community as a whole.
Whether you are a librarian or district leader, learn more about the FRL program and how Parkway School District is empowering librarians as leaders and innovators.
Support for the FRL program is generously provided by Follett.
Future Ready Schools is a project of the Alliance for Excellent Education, a Washington, DC–based non-profit, bipartisan national policy and advocacy organization dedicated to ensuring that all students, particularly those traditionally underserved, graduate from high school ready for success in college, work and citizenship.
