  • Leveraging Libraries to Improve Student Achievement (LLISA) 

    The Department of Innovative Learning, Library Media Services (LMS), has launched the “Leveraging Libraries to Improve Students Achievement, LLISA” initiative during the 2021-2022 school year. Key to this initiative, LMS will provide ongoing leadership and support for quality library media programs that:  

    • Create a resource/digital-rich teaching and learning environment that is inviting, safe, flexible, and conducive to learning, and supports multiple literacies 

    • Cultivate a collaborative culture of inquiry and literary analysis/appreciation 

    • Integrate information, communication, and technology across curriculum, and 

    • Encourage the independent, ethical exploration, creative production, and communication of information and ideas. 

    Leveraging Libraries

    With the transition from the Florida Standards in ELA and Math to Benchmarks for Excellent Student Thinking (B.E.S.T.) Standards that embed research literacy skills into every curriculum content area, school libraries and library media specialists play key roles in the development of inquiry, literacy, and lifelong learning skills students will need to become college, career, and "life” ready. As librarian teacher leaders, they, too, are the “digital content brokers” weaving, modeling, and supporting the effective integration of technology throughout the teaching/learning process. 

    A thriving school library program equates to increased student engagement, personalized learning opportunities, and access to the variety of digital resources available within and beyond their schools. Our partnership with the Broward County Public Library and Nova Southeastern Library further expands access to additional digital resources, online databases, homework assistance, and literacy events throughout the year.  

    Students continue to have access to the many E-books using Axis360, as part of the Broward County Public School’s partnership with Broward County Library. For students to have access to the AXI 360 eBooks, they need to opt-in to the Digital Direct Card download through the Student Code of Conduct at the beginning of the school year.  The E-books can be read on a computer or any device using the Axis360 app.  Now students have access to current books anytime, anywhere. Broward students are readers and readers are leaders!
