In our pursuit of a more fair, just and good system of education, we want each of our learners, each of our scholars and each of their educators, to be individually and collectively presented with academically/intellectually complex tasks that are worthy of their productive struggle and allow them authentic opportunities to demonstrate their work and their learning of academic content and transferable skills in a joyful and adventurous environment.
CMSD has embarked on a new Vision for Learning that is designed to be more personalized, engage students more deeply and give them more control of their learning.
The Vision comprises four elements:
- Competency-based Education, which focuses on mastery of standards
- Schools without Walls, flexible use of time, place, technology and talent for anywhere, anytime learning
- Whole Human Learning, incorporating student and educator social, emotional and cultural wellness
- Personalized Learner Pathways, equitable, student-centered career development
