Coal City students and teachers are off to a great start! (And the 21st time now I am back to school...)
This year we are starting with the largest number of student devices on the ground ever! More than 300 iPads at grades K-4 and more than 900 Chromebooks grades 5 through 12. Fifteen classroom 6-12 that are 1:1 Classrooms, and many mobile carts that teachers can use to enhance and support instruction.
We are continuing to build Today's Classrooms as a place where collaboration, communication, creativity and critical thinking are taking place while delivering a Common Core curriculum.
At the same time, teachers are focusing on the Danielson Framework to refine their skills as high quality instructors.
We are excited about the potential of the school year ahead of us!
We are striving to improve communication with parents and the community through our social media channels and website. Please take a look at our Twitter and Facebook streams, & follow / like our staff to be connected to Coal City Schools this year!
