CUSD 201 Future Planning Update Meeting
Public meeting to present the findings of the task force, review next steps, and answer questions from the attenddees
Essential question for the committee:
How can our building configurations for the elementary age students provide:
- Optimal systems of education?
- Equitable access to all of our resources?
- Long term sustainability?
Optimal systems include:
- Strongly aligned programming for Special Education students, Dual Language students and English Language Learners
- Intervention/enrichment opportunities for all students in core areas of English Language Arts (ELA) and math
- Curriculum materials
- Professional learning and collaboration
Equity is defined as:
- Students get the resources they need to reach their potential
- Equity-based education is making sure every student has what they need to be successful. This means different things for different students, and resources look different for each student. It also means removing barriers that may prevent students from accessing the most rigorous education possible and supporting them to succeed in that learning experience.
