For the upcoming school year, the School Library requires a continued level of
dedicated funding to allow for the growth of a relevant and substantial resource
collection to address the needs of a full complement of courses from grade 9 through
grade 12. An emphasis should continue to be placed on the acquisition of resources to
build and expand the collection for students and staff. Centrally located resources
made available through the School Library Information Centre, often have a cross-
curricular application and function to support program delivery for staff, assignment
completion for students, and build literacy through access to varied recreational reading
materials. Such resources form a vital foundation for student success in high school.
