Media Program Statement of Philosophy and Goals
The primary objective of the Greene County School System media program is to provide resources that will enrich and support the instructional program. The program will focus on the students served – their varied interests, abilities, maturity levels, and socio-economic backgrounds.
The Greene County School System is concerned with generating an understanding of American freedoms through the development of informed and responsible citizens. The American Association of School Librarians and the Greene County School System assert that the responsibility of the media program is to preserve intellectual freedom by placing principle above personal opinion and reason above prejudice in the selection of media resources.
The principles of intellectual freedom are inherent in the first amendment of the Constitution of the United States and are expressed in the Library Bill if Rights adopted by the American Library Association.
