COLA board member Cheryl McCarthy graciously volunteered to create a template letter of support for ESSA funding for School Library Media Programs in RI.
Members should feel free to adapt and use any portions of the attached letter to advocate to school superintendents or interested parties in RI to support ESSA funding for School Libraries in RI. Feel free to shorten the letter depending on your constituents. Cheryl has also shared the letter with SLRI President Sarah Hunicke. SLRI held a working meeting to draft advocacy letters and elevator speeches to support ESSA for school libraries.
For questions, please contact Cheryl.
