At Airport High School, we believe reading and literacy are important. According to a 2009 study by the National Coalition for Literacy, the more literate an adult is, the more likely he/she is to: read to his/her children and discuss school topics; be employed and earn a higher income; use technologies such as email and the Internet; and vote, volunteer, and access information about current local and national events. Therefore, the mission of the Airport High School library media program is to provide a nurturing learning environment through which members of our school community are equipped to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to effectively function as productive twenty-first century citizens.
Our mission is accomplished through the following objectives:
The overarching mission of the Library Media Center Program is aligned with the mission and vision statements of Airport High School and Lexington School District Two and the recommendations of American Library Association’s Information Literacy Standards for Student Learning (http://www.ala.org/aasl/guidelinesandstandards/learningstandards/standards).
Computers are available for educational purposes. Students must follow all Lexington School District Two acceptable use policies.
Students may print in black and white at no charge for class assignments.
Color printing is available for class assignments free of charge for the first page and at rate of 25 cents per additional page.
Seniors with a study hall may volunteer in the media center with the assistant principal's approval.
