“The New  York State Department of Education (SED) recently approved a school library evaluation rubric.

Sara Kelly Johns shares:

This  rubric means that school librarians will be evaluated as school  librarians, not classroom teachers and was the third submission in an  effort led by the  Section of School Librarians (SSL) of NYLA and the  NYS School Library Systems Association (SLSA).

According to the press release from Albany:

The tool provides guidance to school districts in  evaluating the performance of school librarians in support of the newly  mandated Annual Professional Performance Review (APPR) process.

“We  are excited to be able to provide this resource to schools across New  York State, and believe it is the most accurate tool available for  evaluating school librarians,” stated NYLA Executive Director Jeremy  Johannesen.

The “School Librarian Evaluation Rubric” can be found online on the SED website at:
