For more than 5 years, SSD has been implementing the principles and practices of continuous improvement throughout the district, or as they often say, "From the Board Room to the Classroom". Hear from staff about what it takes to create and sustain a high-performing learning system, one that engages students and families as partners and promotes the inclusion of student voice within classroom learning systems. Participants of the session receive practical tools and resources to support the implementation of student data folders, and the engagement of students in the creation of a classroom mission and goal setting, as well as strategies for recognizing achievement. Impact of these approaches will be shared. Participants of this session will be able to: a) explore one districtŸ??s approach to engaging students in classroom culture and day to day activities b) gain specific strategies, tools and resources to increase student engagement, allowing for students to have voice and choice within their learning by being engaged in setting the culture of the classroom and the study of both class and individual student data.
