This is an exciting prototype that will involve a number of different facets related to Making Learning Visible.  RJ is involved in Real Time Reporting this year, which is a wonderful way to connect with students and families on a frequent basis to monitor progress.  myBlueprint is also being used as a way to document learning around the 21st Century Competencies and will also be used as a reflective tool around academic performance.  Students will also share their learning during our Student Celebration of Learning evening.  Using data to drive instruction is also something that is incorporated into all of our prototypes and our Literacy Coach is working closely with our staff to monitor literacy achievement and the impact of push in guided reading support while our Numeracy Coach will be working with teams who will be doing calculation audits to see growth in basic facts.  We will also continue to keep our community informed of the great things happening at RJ through our weekly newsletter.
