Flexible scheduling is used in our library media center. Flexible scheduling allows the use of the library media center at the point of need by individuals, small groups, and/or classes through planning by the classroom teacher and library media specialist to integrate information skills and literature into classroom curriculum. With flexible scheduling, students are allowed to check-out and return books at any time during the school day. Of course, students must have their teacher's permission before leaving the classroom.
In addition to the flexible schedule, classes also visit the library for lessons once per week on a rotating schedule with their reading teacher. Other classes have the option to also schedule lessons using library facilities at any time their curriculum needs such lessons.
