Extractions: The Development of School Libraries in South Carolina The following speech was delivered by Margaret Ehrhardt on March 31, 1988 as the Third Annual Deans' Lecture of the University of South Carolina College of Library and Information Science. Ms. Ehrhardt was Supervisor of School Library Services for the South Carolina State Department of Education from 1970 until the early 1980s. THE CRUCIAL YEARS: SCHOOL LIBRARY MEDIA CENTERS The years 1945-1985 were crucial years for school library programs, not only in South Carolina, but for the nation as well. The ALA Handbook for 1944 showed that only 15 states had school library supervisors. It was interesting to note that seven of these were Southern states, including North Carolina, Georgia, Florida and Tennessee. Tonight I should like to explore with you some of the significant events that have helped to shape the development of school library media programs in our state. The first significant factor was the employment by the State Department of Education of the first Supervisor of Library Services. It is seldom that one can pinpoint the beginning of a library media program, but this is not true of school library media services in South Carolina. The date was March 29, 1946, and the time was 11:00. It was then that an announcement was made to the School Library Section of the South Carolina Education Association which was in session at University High School here in Columbia that the State Department of Education had received a grant from the General Education Board (of the Rockefeller Foundation) to employ a Library Supervisor. This was the first attempt to bring structure into what had been haphazard library development in the schools.

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.

Extractions: August 29, 2000 (HOLLANDALE) - U.S. Secretary of Education Richard W. Riley announced today Mississippi's statewide expansion of the ExplorNet Technology Learning Project, an innovative workforce development program that provides technology training to students in America's most rural communities. "I am delighted when I hear about unique programs such as ExplorNet's," said Riley during the third leg of his "Success Express" tour. "By introducing hands-on technology skills to students in these traditionally under served areas, we are helping pave the road to their economic success. This program provides a foundation to a number of careers." The centerpiece of the ExplorNet program is the Computer Recycling (CPR) Project. The curriculum teaches students to analyze older computers, remove outdated parts, and replace them with state-of-the-art components. They are also capable of building new machines from scratch. Students then install these machines in other classrooms or media centers so all students can benefit from the latest technology.

Extractions: Mississippi/Alabama Sea Grant 9-94 Marine Education Effort Trains Future Scientists The impact of science education on coastal and ocean science, policy, management and technology is often evaluated in terms of training and education at the college level. But pre-college students must be in the science education pipeline to maintain a steady and diverse cadre of graduate students in marine-related studies. Sea Grant meets that need well. A look at major meetings, such as the Marine Technology Society's annual conference, will show that Sea Grant educators are in the forefront of hands-on, discovery education in marine sciences for pre-college students and the adults who teach them. Model K-12 Programs Pilot studies in Mississippi supported by Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant established national models for programs that introduce students and teachers to the marine environment and ignite their enthusiasm for science. For example, "Project Marine Discovery" reaches 31,000 students each year with structured field trips and other hands-on marine science programs. The project started as a three-hour field trip program for four school groups at kindergarten through 12th grade levels; it now encompasses a variety of programs run by a corps of professional marine educators and docents for individuals from nursery school to the elderly. The Renew America Foundation selected "Project Marine Discovery" as the nation's top environmental education program in the marine and coastal protection category and gave the program its 1993 National Environmental Achievement Award.

Extractions: November 16, 2000 (JACKSON, MS) - Beginning in January, ten Mississippi school districts will embark on a unique project that will increase the availability of classroom technology and the employability of participating students. Through the Computer Recycling Project (CPR) students will learn to build and upgrade computers for their school district as well as serve as tech-support teams. The curriculum is designed by ExplorNet, a 501(c) 3 non-profit, in conjunction with the Mississippi Department of Education to ensure the course meets the state's technology goals. "Rural communities that have struggled to equip their schools with state-of-the-art technology can really benefit through this program, " said Andrew Smith, State Director of ExplorNet-Mississippi. "Participating schools save money as the student-built computers are deployed to other classrooms or media centers, so all students can learn from this technology, not just a select few." CPR students may also provide tech-support for teachers, allowing schools to further leverage their technology dollars.
