You’re doing a terrific job collaborating with teachers and getting students to read independently, but – does your principal know? Communicating positively and regularly with your building principal is your key to partnering for student academic achievement.

  2. Determine trends, growth, and challenges for the library program over time,

  3. Set annual library program goals and objectives,

  4. Enhance your professional portfolio to use in your own annual assessment by your principal, and
