Letter to Superintendents

August 27, 2020

MLA has urged members of the Board of the Michigan Association of Superintendents & Administrators to support Michigan’s 1.5 million students by maintaining or increasing certified school librarians in all 894 Michigan school districts. We stand united with the Michigan Association for Media in Education (MAME) in our efforts to refocus attention on this critical and essential resource for our children.

During these unprecedented times of a global pandemic, superintendents in each of our school districts have the ability and the authority needed to make significant changes to stop the downsizing of school libraries and librarians. We asked the association to help bring focus and direction to this challenge as it related to their own advocacy priorities and asked them to maintain and increase their support of keeping libraries and librarians as a part of the school day.

We reiterated that librarians are a critical and essential resource for our children, and asked that the Michigan Association of Superintendents & Administrators advocate strongly to maintain and increase support for school libraries and certified school librarians.
