We believe all students have the essential right to a quality instructional program that meets their individual needs, is connected to their community and the world around them, and is based on a guaranteed, viable, and culturally responsive curriculum. We establish ongoing goals for student growth and achievement based on formative and summative assessment data, research and school and community expectations. We know that students are most successful when jointly supported by parents, school, and community. Together, we have an individual and collective responsibility to our students and to the ongoing continuous improvement of student learning.
The Student Learning Department is responsible for ensuring each student has equitable access to quality teaching and learning every day. The Quality Teaching and Learning document captures our beliefs around the skills, learning experiences, and teaching practices we expect for our students in Edmonds.
The Student Learning team supports, encourages, and inspires staff in these areas, as well as, continuously works to develop a dynamic coherent and viable curriculum, system-wide assessment structures and ongoing professional learning for continuous school and district improvement. The Professional Learning Communities document embraces our beliefs and vision for how adults across the system work, learn, and focus on Each Student Learning, Everyday!
