Project-Based Learning for all Ages
Our Plan to Implement Project Based Learning
- 4 Year Timeline to Implement Project Based Learning in Mancos School District (2019-2023)
- Accountability to implement: View our Strategic Plan and Monitoring Reports
- Portrait of a Graduate is our district's "north star," meaning that we will always reflect on if any new or existing programming is aligned with the work of building these Mancos RE-6 essential competencies, including Project Based Learning.
What is Portrait of a Graduate?
Portrait of a Graduate competencies and skills are best defined as character growth. We endeavor to nurture and elevate our students' confidence so they can find success in post-secondary life.
Character growth will be accomplished in harmony with 1) academic, content-based growth and 2) our project-based and student-centered model -- with equal emphasis being placed on both.
In our model, students are actively engaged in, and therefore accountable for meeting standards, pursuing personal passions, and charting post-secondary possibilities.
