District Commitment Statement

In order to work towards this goal, a 24 member Curriculum Council has been created.

The Council meets five times per school year and focuses on the following:
In addition to the Curriculum Council, there has been a district commitment to the development of Professional Learning Communities. In these communities teachers are committed to working collaboratively and to the sharing of ideas. Teachers discuss both formative and summative assessments which check for student learning. The end result of this collaborative work is the use of highly effective teaching strategies which lead to increased student learning.
