Please pardon the cross-posting.

Here's some good news for our neighbors to the north. This is from a 1/9/14 School Library Journal article, http://www.slj.com/2014/01/schools/bellevue-wa-to-rehire-school-librarians:
Washington State’s Bellevue School District (BSD) is seeking to hire two certified media specialists, to be known as Research Technology Specialists, by this spring in order to lead the libraries in two of its secondary schools, and hopes to fully staff at least some of its remaining secondary schools soon, District Superintendent Dr. Tim Mills confirms. Depending on what funds can be made available, up to 11 positions in total could be filled for the 2015–2016 school year, he says. In addition to direct instruction, the two new hires also will begin working with the district to create a K–12 information literacy and technology curriculum in line with the Common Core State Standards...
Advocacy efforts by parents, educators, and the Washington Library Media Association are credited as a big factor in this decision.
