The new Iowa School Library Standards are now available.
The standards were developed by a cross section of librarians from across the state, college prep programs for teacher librarians, Area Education Agencies and the Iowa Department of Education.
The standards integrate national standards with Iowa Code, Iowa Administrative Rules and best practices. Though many of the standards are not required by Iowa Code, they align with successful school library programs. Use of the standard ensures compliance with these basic code requirements.
The standards can be used by teacher librarians and leadership teams to discuss how library programs can support continuous improvement, especially universal instruction and local infrastructure, when implemented at successful levels.
