CCPS eyes learning initiative
DENTON — Caroline County Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Patricia Saelens is hosting a public meeting at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 14, in the Denton Elementary School cafeteria.
The meeting will update families and community members on school system academic goals, the implementation of rigorous standards and the new county initiative, Essentials for Learning.
“As we dive into the second term, it is the perfect
time to check for evidence of progress toward our goals,” said Saelens. “I am excited to meet with families and community members to celebrate student and teacher successes.”
Teachers and administrators will be sharing tasks students are doing throughout their day, and will provide experiences for parents and the community to help them better understand how education is changing to meet the 21st Century learner.
As CCPS moves to incorporate more of the skills students need — critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, communication, character and citizenship — the instructional practices are changing.
It is important that the community understand and experience why the school system is challenging students and increasing rigor, and what the community can do to support this shift in instructional practices.
There will be time for those in attendance to ask questions. Light refreshments will be ser ved.
