Today it seems that accountability is the hot topic in educational reform. It will become increasingly important for school library media specialists to demonstrate the importance of their media center to the school, and also be able to demonstrate how effectively they are doing their job. Busy adminstrators like numbers and well organized reports to demonstrate progress.
Your mission statement declares what you propose to achieve.
Action plans detail the steps needed to achieve your mission and defines how you will evaluate your progress.
Annual reports provide a very effective way to demonstrate to the adminstration that you are improving the educational process.
