Ways the librarian of the future will keep busy? (Blue Skunk blog) bit.ly/16efI0Q

Post has shared content
Are you aware of the changes the South Carolina Department of Education is proposing to make to R 43-205, which regulates maximums and minimums regarding school staffing, class size, and YES, whether or not a school needs a full or part time (or any time) media specialist? If not, please visit the link and read the document. Then, get in touch with our state School Board officials. It is imperative for school media specialists to call and/or email our State Board representatives. In addition to contacting your region's representative, be sure to also contact Chair Dr. David Blackmon (davidblackmon49@yahoo.com) and state appointed member, Mr. Mike Brenan (MBrenan@BBandT.com). Let them know why changes to R 43-205 will be harmful to South Carolina's children. The entire board membership can be viewed here: http://ed.sc.gov/agency/stateboard/StateBoardMembers.cfm

An open forum with the State Board is being held October 9th and a public hearing is being held November 13th. We should have a voice at both! You can contact Darlene Prevatt, who is organizing the November 13th hearing at 803-734-3477 or via email at DPrevatt@ed.sc.gov.
