FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT ERIC, CONTACT ACCESS ERIC 1-800-LET-ERIC INTRODUCTION Advocates of school library media programs have long been convinced of the relationship between quality library media programs and academic achievement. Most studies of this relationship were conducted between 1959 and 1979, were limited in scope, and usually used a small number of subjects in a limited geographical area. This study was designed both to update the existing research and to examine the relationship between library media programs and student achievement. METHODOLOGY Ideally, schools included in the sample for a study such as this would be selected on a random, stratified, or quota basis. None of these sampling designs was possible, because schools included in the sample had to have library media centers that responded to the 1989 survey of school library media centers in Colorado and had to use the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills (ITBS) or Tests of Achievement and Proficiency (TAP). These data were available for only 221 of 1,331 public elementary and secondary schools in Colorado during the 1988-89 school year. The study relied entirely upon available data about school library media centers and their school and community contexts to predict norm-referenced test scores.

Inter-Library Loan Agreement have been exhausted, resource sharing requests to more distant school library media centers should conform to the policies of the florida school Library media http://media.pasco.k12.fl.us/Pages/ILL.html
Extractions: DISTRICT INTER-LIBRARY LOAN AGREEMENT This code is a voluntary agreement recommended by the Pasco ILL Task force on March 5, 1993, (Revised June 9, 1999), to govern resource sharing among District school library media centers. It has been adapted from the Interlibrary Loan Code for the Florida School Library Media Network (SUNLINK) that was adopted on September 25, 1992. INTRODUCTION Resource sharing is essential to the vitality of school library media centers of all types and sizes as a means of greatly expanding the range of materials available to users. Lending between school library media centers is in the school's best interest and should be encouraged. This code is intended to make resource sharing policies among school library media centers as liberal and as easy to apply as possible. Resource sharing should serve as an adjunct to, not a substitute for, collection development. Requests to borrow should be sent to the closest member school library media center, using good judgment and common sense, striving for as equitable a distribution as is fair and practical. When resources within the district have been exhausted, resource sharing requests to more distant school library media centers should conform to the policies of the Florida School Library Media Network (SUNLINK).

Extractions: By Matthew Berry Last year, only seven percent of fourth graders at Spencer Bibbs Elementary School in Pensacola were able to score above the national average on a standardized reading comprehension test. Fully two-thirds of these students ranked in the lowest 25 percent nationally, while, amazingly, not one Bibbs fourth grader was able to place among the top 25 percent. Plainly, something is terribly wrong at Bibbs. For the predominantly African-American parents of modest means whose children are assigned to Bibbs, our nation's promise of equal educational opportunities at times must appear to be little more than a cruel hoax. These parents see their children fall farther and farther behind, trapped in a school that is clearly failing to teach them even the basics. Fortunately, however, the State of Florida is now offering Bibbs parents hope. Because of Governor Bush's recently enacted A+ Plan for Education, students assigned to Bibbs and other "F"-rated schools will be eligible for an opportunity scholarship, which they may use to escape from a failing school and attend a better public school or a private school. This year, students at Bibbs and one other low-performing Pensacola elementary school will be eligible for the program. Next fall, it is estimated that the list of failing schools will number between 150 and 300.

Extractions: In an effort to address the immediate concerns of the Colorado education community, the Center for the Study and Prevention of Violence (CSPV) introduced the Safe Communities-Safe Schools initiative in the fall of 1999. This project will consist of the following strategies that will be available to all school communities in Colorado: information about the Safe Communities-Safe Schools Model, technical assistance, publications, web site, information house, media campaign, and a long-term response plan. The SSCC seeks to stimulate discussion, collaboration and action against youth violence by bringing schools, police, youth-serving agencies, the judicial system, and other interested parties together in a statewide collaboration. The coalition, formed in 1994, involves more than 1,500 educators, police, and youth workers in activities and stimulates the creation of community-based violence prevention coalitions. It has assisted schools in developing new violence prevention programs and facilitated networking and information sharing among members through bimonthly forums, major conferences, training seminars, task groups, youth involvement, and in-depth consultation and technical assistance to schools and communities.
