Join Us For The Second Future Ready Librarians Webinar...Leading Beyond The Library

It is time for our second Future Ready Librarian webinar and I couldn't be more excited to share it with you.

On April 11, 2017 at 4:00pm EST please join Mark Ray and myself as we welcome two special guests from Parkway School District in Missouri....Bill Bass, Innovation Coordinator for Instructional Technology, Information and Library Media, and Kim Lindskog, District Lead Librarian.
How can school librarians support Future Ready Schools®(FRS)? Future Ready Librarians (FRL) responds to this challenge by identifying specific ways that librarians can lead, teach, and support personalized student learning. The FRL framework is based on research-based components used by FRS. This webinar will examine how librarians can support collaborative leadership by leading beyond the library. Hear from district and library leaders how school librarians are extending their leadership beyond their libraries to benefit their schools and district.

In Missouri’s Parkway School District, the FRL framework and Project Connect are guiding the work of the district as they reimagine existing library programs and make decisions about future directions. Focusing on each of these individual topics has given them great insight into leading beyond the library and what it means to be a librarian in the digital age.
In this webinar, leaders from Parkway School District will...
  • tell their story and connection to one another as leaders within the district;
  • explain the district’s vision and strategic plan for digital learning to highlight the work they do together; and
  • share how they foster a culture of collaboration and innovation that empowers their teachers, learners, and school community as a whole.                                                                     
Whether you are a librarian or district leader, please join us to learn more about the FRL program and how Parkway School District is empowering librarians as leaders and innovators. This webinar is brought to you by FRS and Project Connect.
Register and submit questions for the webinar here.
Support for the FRL program is generously provided by Follett.
