Envision3

Our school of the future.


Envision3

There are no letter grades.


Envision3

No grade levels.


Envision3

Because our focus is on student learning.


Envision3

Not time served.


Envision3

Or units covered.


Envision3

Students proceed at their own pace.


Envision3

Based on understanding and mastering content.


Envision3

So children who are more advanced will move ahead more quickly...


Envision3

and those who require more time will get the time they need.


Envision3

To learn.


Envision3

Not just pass.


Envision3

In our school of the future, there is no fixed curriculum.


Envision3

Only standards.


Envision3

Teachers are given free reign to design their own curriculum


Envision3

based on the needs of their students.


Envision3

Because who knows the needs of their students


Envision3

better than the teachers who must actually teach those students?


Envision3

Teachers are masters of instructional design.


Envision3

Put another way, we put the teacher back into teaching.


Envision3

In our school of the future, all students have access to technology.


Envision3

Technology is fully integrated into our curriculum and classrooms.


Envision3

Because when used properly...


Envision3

today’s interactive and communication technologies are the most powerful tools for teaching and learning


Envision3

ever invented.


Envision3

So those IRRITATING ipods


Envision3

those ANNOYING cell phones


Envision3

and all those AWFUL computers and netbooks and laptops...


Envision3

are actually used in our classrooms to excite and engage our students in the process of learning.


Envision3

Our students are connected.


Envision3

But they also unplug.


Envision3

In our school of the future, at least one hour each day is dedicated to exercise.


Envision3

Because children need to run and play.


Envision3

So gym teachers and music teachers and art teachers, dust off those resumes


Envision3

because we need you.


Envision3

Our school has a garden.


Envision3

Every student works in the garden.


Envision3

They grow food with their hands.


Envision3

They eat the food they grow.


Envision3

Healthy food. Sustainable food.


Envision3

There are no vending machines.


Envision3

Anywhere.


Envision3

We don’t sell soda pop and candy.


Envision3

Ever.


Envision3

We don’t serve processed food for lunch.


Envision3

Instead, we nurture our children’s bodies...


Envision3

while we engage their minds.


Envision3

Our school sits at the hub of the community.


Envision3

The school’s resources are available to the community.


Envision3

And our students are required to serve their community in some meaningful way.


Envision3

We are all connected.


Envision3

To each other.


Envision3

To a common cause.


Envision3

To make our communities better.


Envision3

To make our world brighter.


Envision3

And to embrace the ideals of John Winthrop...


Envision3

That we shall be as a shining City on a Hill


Envision3

because the eyes of the world are upon us.


Envision3

Envision that.


Envision3

Our school of the future.
