Retain Certified Librarians in our schools district wide.

Removing Certified Librarians from Elementary and Junior High Schools District wide contradicts the district's mission to improve failing schools, support successful schools, and raise the bar for student achievement. It contradicts the adoption of the Utah Core Curriculum, with its emphasis on inquiry-based learning. It contradicts the data from studies that show that schools with endorsed librarians prove more successful than schools without. (Amy Jamison) (See Library Research Service school impact studies:
