SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah State Board of Education is seeking public comment on a proposed update to the Core Standards for Library Media in public schools for sixth through 12th grades.
The standards have been under review and revision throughout the 2013-14 school year. Details of the proposed standards can be found at the school board website, and an online survey is available at www.surveymonkey.com/s/lms_public_comment.
On May 9, the State School Board approved the revised standards for public comment. The period runs through Aug. 17. After the comments have been reviewed and summarized and changes made, a final presentation on the standards will be made to the board.
The standards are aimed at preparing students to be literate members of society who are able to find, evaluate and use information appropriately throughout their academic, professional and personal lives.
Standards are organized in three strands: research and information literacy, reading engagement and media literacy.
