Mission Statement
The Chelsea School District Media Centers promote communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking by providing developmentally appropriate learning environments while supporting individual needs. The CSD Media Centers empower students by providing equity and freedom of access to information. They engage students’ minds by expanding awareness about the use of information in a global world and by utilizing informational resources to develop critical thinking skills. The CSD Media Centers help students explore possibilities by providing collections of materials and resources within culturally open environments. By supplying books that challenge social norms and give voice to the voiceless, CSD Media Centers support students in becoming knowledgeable and compassionate citizens. Finally, the Chelsea School District Media Centers encourage lifelong learning and literacy while celebrating the joy of reading.
