CUSD 201 Elementary Future Planning Task Force

Goals for this committee:

  • Develop two options for the building configurations of elementary age students that will be presented before the CUSD 201 Board of Education 
  • Create avenues for feedback and communication among all stakeholders in the community once these options have been presented

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?

Definitions

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
  • Sustainability 

Resources include:

  • Curriculum materials
  • Staffing
  • Professional learning and collaboration
  • Scheduling

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.
