District 181 Media Resource Centers (MRC) are places of inquiry, discovery and excitement. Students explore literature, discover and practice new skills, and learn to express themselves in safe and welcoming environments. The MRC is the information center of each school, providing books, technology, and other resources.
MRC Directors teach all students, introduce and facilitate the use of technology, select and administer resources, and collaborate to implement the D181 information literacy standards. The MRC program is fully integrated into the school’s curriculum with individual, grade level, and school-wide learning activities.
The mission of the District 181 Media Resource Centers is to encourage the development of lifelong readers and critical thinkers and provide high quality information resources and collaborative teaching to support the entire faculty.
