District 19 school communities and partners will work together to provide our scholars and families with academic, social/emotional resources and offer support to foster learning inside and outside of the traditional classroom in order to ensure access to high quality blended learning and remote learning opportunities. Our Scholars will be equipped with the skills needed to move towards mastery, excel at the next level and expand their knowledge of technology as we work to close the digital divide and sustain students’ path towards college and career readiness.
District 19 school communities will facilitate, engage and support scholars’ learning in a flexible blended learning and remote environment by providing cognitively challenging in-person and virtual learning experiences. We will use a variety of digital platforms and resources to facilitate developmentally-appropriate instruction that is tailored to meet all scholars’ individual learning needs. Our schools will continue to provide a safe, caring, and supportive in-person and remote learning environment by embedding social/emotional structures and mental health supports to address the challenges scholars and families are facing and promoting the wellness of all.
All District 19 schools will provide targeted support around developing, implementing and providing high quality differentiated support utilizing Specially Designed Instruction to create equity and access and measurably improve ELA and math instruction of the bottom quartile, Students with Disabilities and English Language Learners in grades K-8 by 10% on the state assessment. We will ensure that all stakeholders, with deliberate effort, continue to examine and eliminate institutional beliefs, policies, practices, and teaching that perpetuate racial disparities in achievement. We will prepare all students to succeed in a multi-cultural, global society by teaching the contributions and viewpoints of all people in culturally relevant curricula.
