ABSTRACT
The article reports that in this age of standardized high stakes testing, it is imperative that schools provide every advantage to their students. The American Library Association has taken the position that students must be given the opportunity to acquire information literacy skills and time to practice them to mastery, in order to accomplish this it is essential that school library media centers make the transition from fixed to flexible scheduling. Implementation of this type of curriculum requires that media specialists and teachers consult about resources and plan ways to deliver the necessary skills to the students.
