GLMA Awards Breakfast
Thank you to everyone who attended the AASL and GLMA ESSA Workshop on September 24!
GLMA’s ESSA Workshop was fun and informative. While enjoying breakfast provided by Discovery Education, attendees received a packet from AASL filled with priceless information about ESSA, and broke into small groups to brainstorm ideas about how they can best advocate for school media specialists during the ESSA implementation process
The Georgia Library Media Association supports our members in advocating for the support of their school library programs. GLMA employs a registered lobbyist to represent members in the legislative process, and we use various forms of electronic communication and social media to keep our members informed about the state-level policies that impact their programs. We also support members in advocating for their programs at the school, district, state and national levels.
The Biggest Classroom in the School: Fully funding libraries via a dedicated source of funding is the best bargain and gets the best results for Georgia’s schools. To learn more, download our handout here.
