The Worcestor County Public Schools will create and implement a strategic plan for the system's twelve school libraries. With Maryland State Department of Education's recent adoption of the American Association of School Librarians' National School Library Standards and upcoming library staff turnover, this is the opportune time for the school system to create a plan to meet the new standards. Year one of the project will focus on working with stakeholders to develop the strategic plan. The second year of the project will focus on implementing recommendations, developing the curriculum for the school libraries, and providing professional development to the school librarians. At the end of the project, the school system will have a clearly defined vision of a 21st century school library, and school librarians will have the training and resources to meet the needs of the students.
