Rigor at a school near you

December 10, 2009

Did you miss “The Discussion” in December?  You missed a great discussion about what the district is thinking about the meaning of rigor.  Throughout the presentation, you will hear time and time again about how our learners need to be engaged and that not every child is engaged in the same way and at the same level. They need our support.

Are you interested in having your voice heared about the subject of rigor and engagement?  Check out the district website and fill out the survey — 2 minutes of your time can make a huge difference to changes in our district.  Give gifted education a voice.

The Discussion (video, presentation and survey).

During 2009-2010, each school is evaluating some of the best practices in modern education. The potential programs are exciting! These schools are merely evaluating this year — at year end, we will know better whether these out of the box ideas will be implemented. Get involved in what is going on in your campus. Have any thoughts? Share them below by commenting.
