Our shared beliefs

  • All students can succeed
  • Each student has his or her own unique patterns of learning
  • Successful instructional practices are founded on evidence-based research, tempered by experience
  • Universal design and differentiated instruction are effective and interconnected means of meeting the learning or productivity needs of any group of students
  • Classroom teachers are the key educators for a student’s literacy and numeracy development
  • Classroom teachers need the support of the larger community to create a learning environment that supports all students
  • Fairness is not sameness
