Department of Learning & Teaching
In Spring 2022, we engaged over 1,000 stakeholders including students, teachers, families, classified staff, instructional facilitators, school leaders, and district leaders to help us develop a common understanding and language of what “Excellence in Learning and Teaching” means. We summarized and synthesized feedback from all stakeholders to develop our updated Vision of Instruction. We then developed the paragraph below it to better describe the Vision in action:
Inclusive and rigorous learning experiences in which each student is empowered and engaged in caring communities
We aspire to create learning experiences that value and embrace each student’s multiple identities, including but not limited to: culture, language, and ability. We pursue firm goals aligned to standards and driven by data through flexible, student-driven means. We seek to create conditions where students are intellectually active in learning that fosters their passions and curiosity. We strive to partner so that all students, staff, and families are connected, seen, known, and safe.
