How might we design learning experiences so that all students can access learning and be successful?

Describe the prototype(s) your school will focus on. Get creative. Be sure to describe the various approaches staff will take, what you will keep your eye on and how staff plan to document their results.

Looking at our lessons and reflecting on their influence and impact is paramount to this prototype.  Incorporating universal strategies, assistive technology and accommodations so all students can be successful is an area that is addressed in this work.  Our teams are using numeracy as a lever of change with instruction that includes Learning Intentions, Success Criteria and Vocabulary as a way to set clear targets for learning.  Students will also compete a calculation audit in January and June as a way to gather data on student growth related to basic facts.  Revising our IPP goals based on student strengths is also a shift and one where meaningful growth will be assessed and measured.  Staff will also have regular opportunities for collaboration through weekly RTI meetings, monthly team meetings, Lesson Study sessions, and professional learning sessions.
