Prior to our Winter Break I was introduced to Forward Together: A School Leader’s Guide to Creating Inclusive Schools and the companion piece Forward Together: Helping Educators Unlock the Power of Students Who Learn Differently by the National Center for Learning Disabilities.
After collecting data from the DART (reading diagnostic), FSA, and various in-class assessments it was time to sit down and build our class profiles.
Last spring, we applied for a grant from SET-BC to increase our ability to support our diverse student population. The idea came from our observations and from a study one of our staff members wrote-up for her master’s degree.
Lake Trail Middle School is a community school that values learning for all and is guided by the question “How can we make each child’s life better?”. We as a school community, are building a new school, and we are committed to continuing our rich, inviting, and engaging learning as we transition toward our new school in the fall of 2021.
