The Jackson County Public Schools library media program is integral to achieving the mission of the school district--to engage, enlighten, and enrich all students--by providing direct student instruction, staff collaboration, and diverse resources that help students become critical thinkers, lifelong readers, and ethical users and creators of information.
Each school library media coordinator is a highly qualified, certified teacher with a master’s degree in library science. They collaborate with classroom teachers to teach and integrate literature and information skills into the curriculum and to have a positive impact on student achievement.
School library media coordinators teach students the 21st century research skills they need to learn and achieve in school and throughout their lives, but sharing the joy of reading and helping students become lifelong readers is just as important in Jackson County school libraries.
And, that’s not all. Our libraries provide innovative and exciting learning opportunities for students such as 3D printing, makerspaces, coding, and introductory robotics which support district STEM/STEAM initiatives and help make the school library a truly unique and valuable part of the school learning environment.
