The purpose of the Illinois Standards Aligned Instruction for Libraries (I-SAIL) document is to empower, educate, and encourage school library information specialists to plan strategically with other teachers to incorporate information literacy skills in lessons and thereby provide college and career readiness for students.

The 2018 version of I-SAIL is here and updates the document with the most recent releases of the AASL Standards Framework for Learners and ISTE Standards for Students. Below you will find the links to a Google Drive Folder containing documents for each grade level. This allows you to open, download, or print out only the grade levels you need.
