• HSD libraries are welcoming, useful, safe, and fun for students, staff, and the community.

    We provide resources and guidance that support the curriculum and encourage developing literacy for all members of our learning community. In addition, we assist teachers in preparing our students for college and careers by providing professional development in the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that will help students:

    I. INQUIRE - Build new knowledge by inquiring, thinking critically, identifying problems, and developing strategies for solving problems.

    II. INCLUDE - Demonstrate an understanding of and commitment to inclusiveness and respect for diversity in the learning community.

    III. COLLABORATE - Work effectively with others to broaden perspectives and work toward common goals.

    IV. CURATE Make meaning for oneself and others by collecting, organizing, and sharing resources of personal relevance.

    V. EXPLORE - Discover and innovate in a growth mindset developed through experience and reflection.

    VI. ENGAGE - Demonstrate safe, legal, and ethical creating and sharing of knowledge products independently while engaging in a community of practice and an interconnected world.
