  • PLCs Richard Dewey Initiatives of the past 7-8 years UBD, curriculum mapping, unpacking standards, rSchools website, strategic planning, Infinite Campus adoption, building improvement planning, common summative/formative assessments, new math series, readers/writers workshop, Lucy Calkins, Optimal Learning Model/Gradual release, Flipped classroom, etc. Fair amount of staff change in that time, building transitions, various levels of individual success, various degrees of implementation, shaped our values/beliefs, etc. Building Capacity in the system Regardless of building, department, team, etc. with everything that has happened, it would seem difficult to have remained unchanged over the past 7-8 years Individually we have all grown and learned new ways to do things and impact student achievement. Each of us is highly unlikely to have mastered everything. Collectively we have tremendous knowledge, skills, and the power to visualize a new tomorrow and the capacity to bring it into being.
