What to Expect
Because we must work within the activities of school districts and their administrative staffs, assignments are generally not known until the beginning of the semester in which the student does his or her work. You will be notified of your assignment as soon as possible. It is up to you to make the initial contact with the librarian to begin your work. Program directives and assignments will be given to you before you contact your school, and an orientation meeting is usually held shortly after assignments are made and work has begun. You will be notified as soon as we know what they are.
