  • Mission Statement of the District 86

    Library Media Departments 

    Teach all of our students to thoughtfully inquire about the world around them, efficiently seek information which addresses those inquiries, critically evaluate the quality of that information, capably apply the knowledge acquired to new problems, questions, or ideas, and objectively assess the work they produce as a result of the research process.

    Collaborate with other teachers to design and implement lessons and assessments which challenge our students to become effective users of ideas and information, perhaps the single most important 21st century skill.

    Provide leadership, instruction, and expertise in the use of information and technology that encourages creative problem solving and ethical, socially responsible sharing of information.

    Provide access to a variety of quality resources which support the curriculum and meet the diverse needs and interests of our school community in a vibrant learning environment equipped for the demands of 21stcentury teaching and learning.

    Promote life-long learning through programming which encourages reading, inquiry, and the use of technology to meet learning goals.
