Library Media Services
Welcome to the Library Media Services Program
The Library Learning Commons is the hub of our schools and plays a central role in the education of our children. In addition to a physical and virtual space that provides students, the school and community resources to support student learning. The philosophy of our Library Media Program is one of flexible, open-access to support all curricular areas and personal interests. In addition to providing a variety of print and electronic resources, our media centers also deliver a challenging, collaborative, standards-based curriculum based on transdisciplinary strands. The curriculum aligns with national and state standards (Connecticut State, ISTE and AASL) as well as supporting our Vision of the Graduate.

Digital Citizenship: appropriate, responsible, ethical and effective use of technology.
The District uses a robust filtering device to comply with CIPA and COPPA laws and to ensure inappropriate content is filtered for students at school (K-12) as well as at home (K-8).
That being said, the BEST filter is the adult: teachers, staff at school and the parents at home. Our guidelines, links and resources will be helpful in ensuring a productive, valuable and meaningful experience when students use their devices at home.
