Renée Schuster: Advanced Learning Plan has benefits for both students and teachers
In February, our Board of Education unanimously approved the Advanced Learning Plan. We will move forward, together, in providing the best possible educational experience for all District 181 students.
The Advanced Learning Plan has impact beyond those students we have traditionally called our advanced learners. Students in all schools, at all grade levels, and of all abilities will benefit from the phased-in changes that will be made over a number of years.
This plan is rooted in: 1) The New Illinois Standards in the Common Core, 2) National best practices and 3) The advanced learning evaluation conducted by the University of Virginia. Our Advanced Learning Plan follows board directives and is the culmination of discussion that has occurred in our district over the last two years. As we continue to prepare for a new state assessment in 2014-15, we are confident that our commitment to excellence is helping to prepare students for the future.
