The instructional Resource Department is designed to function as an integral part of the total school's educational program. Its purpose is to support the system's philosophy of promoting individual growth while developing an educated person, able to gain and apply knowledge effectively in a complex and changing world.
Library media specialists and teachers collaborate to provide learning experiences that utilize the resources of the Instructional Resource Center (IRC) and the global community. These experiences will enable students to become increasingly self-directed users of information while developing critical thinking skills, with the ultimate goal of creating successful life-long learners.
