Graduates of Southern High School are information-powered citizens who are committed to literacy and prepared for the challenging demands of the twenty-first century. They are lifelong readers and learners who use information and technology in an ethical manner that enables them to solve problems and to satisfy their curiosity in their professional and personal lives.
Provide intellectual and physical access to print and electronic materials approved by AACPS. Provide instruction that fosters reading for leisure, reading for knowledge, and the effective use of information and ideas. Collaborate with the learning community to provide integrated instruction that differentiates for all student needs and enhances student achievement.
The library media center is the dynamic hub of our student centered learning community in which all team members collaborate as partners in the educational process, thus preparing students to be information-powered citizens in a world of traditional printing and transforming electronic technologies.
Students have access to the library media center throughout the school day with classes, in small groups and individually.
Students have remote access via home computers.
Research projects use a variety of technologies to locate and present information.
The library media center provides a wide range of current resources in a variety of formats that appeal to varied learning styles.
Students sent to the media center independently during class must have a pass from their teacher and sign in when they arrive and sign out when they leave. Those students who wish to come to the media center during lunch must have a pass. There are a limited number of monthly passes issued on a first come first serve basis. Students who come before or after school do not need passes.
