Happy Spring? Even though we are ending our week with snow, spring is in the air. Check out all that's been happening in this week's roundup!
Our District is filled with students, staff, families and community members who care deeply about public education and preK-12 students. This commitment is a key factor in the strength of our schools and success of students. As new challenges and opportunities are presented, we want students to be prepared to excel and thrive in college, careers and life. The community engagement and strategic planning conducted over the past two years offers a path toward every student meeting their aspirations and being prepared to live and succeed in the 21st Century. To this end, the District aims to provide proven and innovative instructional methods that meet the needs of each learner and eliminate the achievement gap for economically disadvantaged students. Additionally, we are evaluating and modifying programs and supports to ensure they are effective in promoting student growth, equity and proficiency.
There are several programs and initiatives in the 2018-19 school year designed to meet the District’s goals and priorities. These include outdoor hands-on learning opportunities, personal learning plans (PLPs), embedded professional development, student internships, research-based reading and writing resources, community service and civic opportunities, inquiry-based science lessons, equity and implicit bias training for staff, summer enrichment options for students and a District language immersion program serving kindergarteners and first graders at Jericho Elementary School. Faculty and staff are engaged in designing programs, lessons and curricula that match the interests and learning profiles of students.
I look forward to working with all of you to make 2018-19 school year one of the very best.
