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.
This decision making matrix will be used by the School Library System to communicate the type of decision that is being made or discussed to avoid confusion about the source of the final decision and the role that member librarians will play in reaching the decision. As much as is reasonably possible, major decisions that impact library services in the region will involve SLS members. The desire is to reach consensus; defined as an acceptable solution, one that can be supported, even if it is not the first choice of each individual.

Moving forward, we are moving all functionality from the former SLS site to this new internal communication site. Currently we have moved the Multiple Copy Request process and the Library Forums over. We have also created an SLS Support forum where you can post requests for the SLS Staff. We will be moving over and adding more functionality over time.
