Thank you for taking the time to fill out this review of the School Library System's performance for the past school year. As per §90.18, the information collected from this survey will be submitted to the Division of Library Development as part of the SLS Annual Report. This is also a chance for us at the SLS to identify areas of concern that need additional effort during the coming year.
The School Library System
The School Library System (SLS) of the Genesee Valley Educational Partnership, established by Commissioner's Regulations in 1985, is a state funded program dedicated to improving the libraries of the region's 22 districts and non-public schools. Through cutting edge web development, professional support, and the facilitation of resource sharing tools, the SLS provides mission critical support for libraries and classrooms. Our programs have been recognized nationally as exemplars of the next generation of library services.
