AASL 2014 - Concerns

Tags: Concerns | 2014


One of the responsibilities of each AASL region is to think about professional concerns that the region would like AASL to consider, discuss, and determine possible strategies. These concerns will be discussed at Annual Conference in Las Vegas at the two Affiliate Assembly meetings (Friday evening and Sunday morning), and a complete description of the submission, discussion, and action process is found at:


A list of concerns by year and by region are also found at the bottom of this webpage, and reviewing some of the concerns gives you a sense of the variety of topics that have been submitted over recent years.

The Statement of Concern form is found at:


and is Due to me IMMEADIATELY, I will then submit them to the Affiliate Assembly Chair by the end of this week.

Questions? Post to this group, so that we can all benefit from your query!

I have attached a concern.  Perhaps someone can word it better than me.  But I think when you read it you will get the gist of what is going on.  Some districts won’t even consider librarians for teacher of the year.
