We need you to attend and testify or submit written opinions on (Rule #6A-7.0715) to the State Board of Education meeting in Fernandina Beach, Wednesday, January 18th – 9 am.
The Florida State Board of education is in the process of developing Library Media Training. This training will be required for librarians and media specialist in Florida public school for grades K-12.
Most of this training is a good start toward ridding our schools of inappropriate materials, however, there are some areas that still need attention. You can view the Library Media Training here.
It would be tremendously helpful if you took a couple of minutes to write a Public Comment before the meeting. In an effort to have each comment stand out from the next and have maximum impact, we are encouraging everyone to compose their own using the talking points. You can access talking points here.
Please consider attending the Florida BOE meeting this Wednesday or, if you are unable to attend, submit written opinions here (Rule #6A-7.0715) to address the areas of the training that still leave room for inappropriate material in our schools.
The State Board of Education is meeting and taking the testimony of citizens on:
Wednesday, January 18, 2023, at 9:00 am
Nassau County School Board Office
1201 Atlantic Avenue
Fernandina Beach, FL 32034
The board’s meeting agenda can be found here. (See Action Item #8)
Unfortunately, the opponents of this training are mobilizing their forces to speak out against the Board’s intent to enact this new training.
It is important that the State Board of Education hear loudly and clearly from advocates for this training at Wednesday’s Board meeting. They need to know we support and appreciate their efforts.
