Each student has unique talents and skills that shape learning – and we work to promote personalized learning that will give each student the critical thinking, problem solving and other skills needed to graduate from high school prepared to contribute to our communities and lead successful lives. Our public schools will use student- centered approaches to give students the skills they need to succeed after high school and participate in their communities. Student-centered learning is personalized, engaging, competency-based and not restricted to the classroom. What Are Student- LEARNING IS PERSONALIZED Personalized learning recognizes that students engage in different ways and in different places. Students benefit from individually paced, targeted learning tasks that start from where the student is, formatively assess existing skills and knowledge, and address the student’s needs and interests. LEARNING IS COMPETENCY-BASED Students move ahead when they have demonstrated mastery of content, not when they have reached a certain birthday or completed the required hours in a classroom.
