Step 1 - Documentation & Reflection

The Library Media Specialists in their first three years of employment with Bismarck School District will familiarize themselves with the Library Media Frameworks for Professional Excellence. Supervisors, working with Library Media Specialists in the Induction Phase, will discuss and review the indicators and process to be used during the school year. Library Media Specialists in the Induction Phase will focus on specific domains from the Library Media Frameworks for Professional Excellence each year. Library Media Specialists will use the Professional LMS Self Assessment - Induction Phase (LC1) to help identify these domains. Using these forms, supervisors will assist Library Media Specialists in designing strategies that ensure an understanding of the Library Media Frameworks for Professional Excellence during the first year of Induction Phase.
