Spring Lake Park Schools continues to focus on personalizing learning for each student in the district. At the high school, we are piloting a program that includes several changes that we hope to roll out for more students in the future. “Ignite” is a program that will create a team of four teachers – one from each of the core areas of math, science, language arts/English and social studies – and about 130 ninth grade students for the entire year. Along with building strong relationships with each student, the teachers will work to personalize learning for each students. The students in Ignite will have a different schedule than other ninth grade students that allows greater flexibility throughout each day, week and trimester.
