Congratulations are in order for Media Specialist Kristen Badger and Sebastian Middle School for being awarded the Florida Power-Library Schools Award! This is especially exciting as this is SJCSD’s very first Title I school to receive this award recognition. The Florida Power-Library Schools Award (FPLS) provides statewide recognition to schools that nurture focused, systemic change through involvement of the entire school staff in developing and implementing a plan that integrates the library media program with teacher collaboration and student achievement. Based on the FPLS reviewers’ evaluations, Sebastian’s program received high scores in the following components: Instruction, Curriculum/Assessment, Resource Management, Program Administration, Environment and Advocacy. The FPLS award is valid for a period of three and during that time, the schools have agreed to mentor other schools from around the state in their quest to develop quality library media programs. The FPLS award is sponsored by the Florida Association of Supervisors of Media (FASM) in collaboration with the Florida Association of Media in Education (FAME) and the Florida Department of Education. The formal presentation of the FPLS award will be at the FAME Conference in Orlando this fall.
