Accelerating Student Learning

  • Implement K-12 academic, behavior and attendance interventions to effectively accelerate the learning and achievement of all learners while targeting needs of struggling learners

    Why: This past year we did extensive work to identify interconnected best practices that help struggling students achieve at higher levels. The District Management Council was a key partner in this work. We are now focused on deepening the implementation of these practices throughout the district. These practices include ensuring all students have access to a rigorous general education curriculum, maintaining a coordinated and sustained focus on reading, and targeting customized interventions for all students while modifying schedules to provide extra time to learn with content strong teachers for struggling learners. In addition to these academic supports, we will continue implementing strategies to support students who struggle behaviorally and/or with attendance.
