What is a “shelf” in SchoolShelf

Just as books in a library are organized by topic and put on a bookshelf, SchoolShelf resources are organized by topic and put together in an area that we call a “shelf.”  In SchoolShelf, you will find the following shelf categories:



  • Academic Success
  • Student Success
  • College Preparation
  • Career Planning
  • Parent Involvement
  • Spanish
  • Additional Resources

On each of the above shelves, you will find resources on that topic for your grade level.

We are aware of ADA requirements, we take them seriously, and we are referring to them as we build and expand this website. We know that this kind of access is extremely important to many people and we are exploring the best ways to address their concerns.
