Ms. Roxanne Johnson and Ms. Buffy Hamilton were honored today at the Georgia Board of Education meeting as The Unquiet Library received recognition as one of two “exemplary” high school library programs for the state of Georgia. What is the Georgia Department of Education Exemplary Media Program?
The Georgia Department of Education has designated the August 19, 2010 State Board of Education meeting to recognize three exemplary Library Media Programs. In order to identify and highlight these programs, the Division of Academic Standards is solicited applications from schools. Library Media Programs in three schools (elementary, middle and high) are selected for this recognition. Library Media Specialists and GaDOE staff select the recipients based on the school’s written application, the principal’s narrative, a possible telephone interview, and a probable on-site visit. This program is an opportunity to describe how the Library Media Program is meeting school improvement goals and improving student achievement.
