Project Based Learning Update

While the momentum that we were experiencing last year before COVID came into our world has been slowed this year, there are still incredibly impressive projects happening in our schools. Our teachers deserve so much praise, not just for continuing to do their job under such uncertain circumstances, but for continuing to do it with fidelity and passion. I am excited to announce that we are currently working on a plan to provide our teachers with an opportunity to advance their PBL skills next month through a remote professional development course called, “PBL 201: Improving the Quality of Student Work” that is offered by Buck Institute, the same organization that trained our entire teaching staff in “PBL 101” a year and a half ago. This is a small token of appreciation for their hard work, and one that will help us continue to fulfill our vision of becoming a student-centered, project based district.
