Why This Indicator Matters

School libraries are among the supports often provided to improve student success. Strong libraries become the "hub" of a school and are used by students in a variety of ways. Research has shown that quality school libraries are correlated with higher student achievement. However, in Delaware the "quality library gap" is growing so that access to resources and technology is not available for all students in the state. Dimensions of quality include items such as staffing, funding, collections, technology, integration into curriculum and flexible scheduling.
