Highly Effective School Library Program

Please note: Due to budget constraints, the HESLP is on hiatus for 2015-16. During this time we are reviewing and revising the HESLP rubric to more closely align with CDE's Model Teacher Evaluation Rubric. We are also revising the application process to reflect emerging and developing K-12 promising practice.

 

The Highly Effective School Library Program provides lifelong learning opportunities while supporting all schools as they strive to improve student achievement and prepare students for 21st century success. The Highly Effective School Library Program also recognizes outstanding school librarians and library programs.

Highly Effective Recognition

The" Highly Effective School Library" Program consists of several components: access to an Evaluation Tool, a Professional Development component, and the Recognition Award.
