Team Imagine Re-envisions Middle School Education

At the June 11th Board of Education meeting, “Team Imagine,” a group of middle school teachers and LLC staff, was applauded after their dynamic presentation on re-imagining middle school. Inspired by the advances in curriculum standards and ways of thinking as adopted by the state across several disciplines: Science (NGSS), Social Studies (C3), Arts, and common core/conceptual Mathematics just to name a few, Team Imagine showcased how these new curricular pieces along with the collaborative opportunities made possible with the 1:1 initiative and more cross-disciplinary focused learning activities continue to advance teaching and learning at the middle school level. 

You may view the slides, or watch the presentation in our BOE Video-on Demand archive. It begins exactly at the one hour mark and includes the videos they shared.

Key Influences on the School Calendar

The BOE just voted on the school calendars for the 2019-20 and 2020-21 school years (see links below). The discussion that preceded that vote explored the reasoning behind many of the details inherent in that decision process. In case you missed it, please feel free to read the full article.
