All students and staff, regardless of vaccination status, will continue to be required to wear masks through the end of October.
As people who work in education, we are called every day to be present for our learners, to lift them up, encourage them, and model for them what it means to be a good citizen. As adults, one of our most important jobs is to be role models for the children who are watching our every move, and that is especially critical in times of disagreement. Civil debate is the foundation of our democracy. We teach our children to recognize the humanity in others, to be respectful of other opinions. We can expect no less of ourselves than we do our children.
Teachers in Eastern Carver County Schools not only lead instruction but also facilitate learning for each student. They teach by guiding students towards mastery of content and instilling 21st century skills. Students have access to a variety of resources and tools, and teachers connect student learning beyond the classroom.
Engagement with Learning Tools
With teachers as facilitators, students use a variety of educational tools and resources to maximize learning. While technology will never replace the role of the teacher, it will shape the future careers of our students. Our goal is to prepare students for success beyond high school, wherever their aspirations take them.
Most living and working environments have changed dramatically over the last several decades. Design of spaces and their furnishings reflect purpose: how we live, how we work, and how we learn. We are redefining learning spaces with a variety of furniture, layouts and technology that facilitate collaboration, creativity, comfort, and safety. They also convey a sense of belonging and purpose. School should be a place where students feel welcomed and empowered to learn.
Learner Voice & Choice
Students have the freedom to design the way they showcase their learning based on individual styles, experiences, passions, and needs. Respected as capable co-designers, learner agency is cultivated throughout all learning experiences. As learners become increasingly self-aware they grow into their own best advocates: showcasing their learning based on their individual styles, experiences, passions, needs, and knowing “what’s next” for their ongoing development.
