Jefferson Elementary School Media Center has achieved exemplary status from the Library of Michigan and state Rep. Jeff Farrington today delivered congratulations to Media Specialist Stephanie Staub and Principal Jennifer Davis for the accomplishment.
To achieve the highest status in the state’s Michigan School Libraries for 21st Century Schools (SL21) program, the school completed 38 measurement criteria in the areas of learning, environment and leadership.
“The endorsement Jefferson Elementary has earned from the state library reflects the commitment to excellence its staff and administration have for giving our children one of the greatest gifts possible – a quality education,” said Farrington, R-Utica. “The successful learning environment they have created will go a long way in preparing our young people for the challenges of tomorrow.”
SL21 is part of voluntary management school improvement standards program that assists and recognizes K-12 libraries by setting benchmarks in the areas of instruction, student achievement, technology, facility, staffing, budget, instructional materials, curriculum development, school improvement, community engagement, advocacy and additional applicable criteria.
Jefferson Elementary is in the Warren Consolidated Schools district.
