Collection Development and Teacher Input

The inclusion of teacher input in the media selection process is invaluable in ensuring that the items selected for the IRC collection support the VBCPS curriculum, adhere to the division criteria for selection of instructional materials and are considered helpful by the targeted end user-the teachers!

Recently we recognized that the changing landscape of educational media has resulted in changes to the process. While we are constantly adding many titles throughout the year, some additions are now digital formats of popular hardcopy titles and others are purchased based on online previews. As a result, the need to send hard copy items out for preview has diminished. We have decided that the time has come to retire the preview process that has been utilized for a number of years.

We still depend upon your input as we strive to provide the best materials to support the VBCPS staff and programs. We will need teachers to view content online, suggest possible acquisitions and occasionally preview hardcopy items. In those cases we will reach out on a needs basis. From the time we ask teachers to review items already in our collection to determine whether they are still useful.

We welcome your comments and suggestions regarding the expansion of our media collection.
