RIDE: Please add school library media to plan for ESSA funding

Hello COLA Colleagues,

I just want to keep you updated. I sent this letter to RIDE regarding the proposed ESSA State Plan. We had until June 30th to respond and although Howard Boksenbaum wrote to them in February requesting the addition of school library media programs in the grant funding, RIDE did not add them. So, I thought I should try again. The ESSA Plan is posted to their website and they invite response by June 30th.

Here is the Link:


Thank you,
