The Unquiet Library Is Honored by State Board of Education as Exemplary!

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.    The rubric for evaluating the program may be accessed by clicking here.
The Unquiet Library would like to thank the Cherokee County School District, Principal Dr. Bob Eddy, Creekview High School faculty and staff, our PTA, our parents, and our students for your support of our program.  We look forward to our program growing and continuing our efforts to be an effective partner in teaching and learning as well as a space where your interests, passions, and talented are honored and valued!
