Teaching and Learning

Teacher instructing studentsAcross the district, we are continuing work to improve student learning in all content areas as well as in social emotional skill development. Professional development is conducted through Professional Learning Communities. As a district we believe in asking and answering the four critical questions of learning* for ALL…students, teachers and administrators.



  • What is it we expect students (teachers, administrators, etc.) to know?
  • How will we know when they have learned it?
  • How will we respond when they don't learn?
  • How will we respond when they already know it?

        *(Based on work in Professional Learning Communities by Rebecca DuFour, Richard DuFour and Robert Eaker)

The links from our home page provide a wide variety of resources, materials and information to help teachers answer the four critical questions and support for instructional strategies and practices.
