If you walk around the JCP hallways, you'll see students sprawled everywhere reading, writing, and working on math. We're cultivating life-long learners!
Every Monday morning is CSL time, Collaboration for Student Learning. This extra time is reserved for teachers to discuss students, look at data, and determine how, as a team, they can support each student. From this CSL work they determine how they will remediate, re-teach, or extend students. Even more importantly, teachers look at what their peers did last week and pick their brains to figure out what each teacher can do to improve their instruction and impact on students. Gone are the days of teachers closing their doors, shutting the blinds and only focusing on their class.
Teachers are collaborating, teaming and sharing in order to provide your kiddo with the best education possible. We have teams of 16, and 15 teachers. We appear to be the largest primary school in the state. Though this may seem daunting to coordinate, there is some teacher on your child’s team who is an expert in exactly what your child needs. As teams collaborate on Monday mornings, and throughout the week, they will be able to tap into the expertise of their peers to give our students the very best learning experience possible.
