Deltona High has been recognized as a 2016 Florida Power Library School. This award is sponsored by the Florida Department of Education’s Library Services and the Florida of Supervisors of Media (FASM). Awarded schools are determined to have outstanding libraries that are fully integrated into their school-wide programming.
Candidates applying to this program solicit input from their stakeholders and agree to document evidence in the form of a portfolio and short video featuring six key areas: Instruction, resource management, curriculum/assessment support, program administration, environment, and advocacy. The program is evaluated using the ExC3EL rubric and a final interview is conducted. Florida Power Library Schools achieving this status will be formally recognized in late October at the Florida Association for Media in Education Conference. Recipients will retain this status for a period of three years.
Volusia County is fortunate to have two High Schools receive this award this year: Mrs. Maria O’Brien at Deltona High School and Mrs. Kris Smith at Atlantic High School.
