Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) – Listening Tours & Workshop

Your voice needs to be heard. In December 2015, President Obama signed the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) into law. It includes language regarding “effective school library programs”, yet school librarian positions in the state of Illinois are disappearing. ISLMA has issued a statement regarding the loss of Chicago Public Schools (CPS) library positions. It is their hope that the work ISLMA and others have been doing regarding ESSA will help reverse this trend.
