Librarians Speak at Senate Hearing
Texas State school librarians, including several from Region 11, testified at a Senate hearing on Finance in support of school libraries. From Region 11:

Robin Stout – Library Director for Lewisville ISD
Leah Mann – Killian Middle School Librarian in Lewisville ISD
Donna Kearley – Library Director Denton ISD
Robin Stout Announced as Lilead Fellow
The national Lilead Fellows Program, sponsored by the University of Maryland, is a group of 25 school library supervisors chosen from a national pool of applicants who work together and with others in their districts to bring about change in schools and communities. The Fellows are library supervisors that are innovative and creative leaders who think outside the prevailing traditional paradigm. The Fellows, during the 18-month program, will work collaboratively to make innovative changes to enable school library programs to truly make a difference in the lives of all members of their school communities. Media Services Supervisor Robin Stout was notified that she was one of 25 administrators chosen to participate in the Lilead Fellows Program
Moving from the H Drive to Google Drive - Race to the Space!
Downing Middle School students coined the phrase Race to the Space! The space they are referring to is the cloud. Currently, staff and student files may be located on Technology servers in a place called the home directory (H drive). The district's space is limited on the H drive, and we are currently at full capacity.
Google Drive has unlimited storage capabilities. It is imperative that LISD staff and students free up this space quickly.
