SLIM Continuing Education Purpose Statement (Kansas)
SLIM’s school librarian continuing education program provides all Kansas public and open-enrollment charter school teacher librarians in grades PreK-12 access to professional development opportunities (without paying for-college credit hour tuition and fees).
This program is designed to provide continuing education sessions that include learning outcomes aligned with national and state standards for teaching information and technology literacy across all assessed content areas. We will offer face-to-face sessions that include instruction, materials, and resources. Participants can submit contact hours as part of a professional development plan for meeting selected standards.
