School Librarians: Don’t Overlook HB0234
Beginning with the 2022-23 school year, the Illinois legislature has amended HB 0234 to require all public high schools to include a unit of instruction on media literacy and states the topics of instruction that are required. School librarians, with their focus on information and media literacy, should be a part of the conversation happening in schools around Illinois as to how this requirement will be implemented. Stay ahead of the curve and read up on HB0234, and contact the Illinois State Board of Education for more information. Also, please don’t hesitate to contact Leah Gregory, our school library member liaison, for further resources.
