Prioritized Learning is the learning that has been identified as most essential to a particular grade level or course and for which significant time and resources are devoted to ensure mastery.
One of the keys to high-impact teaching and learning is clearly identifying and articulating what students need to know and be able to do. Grade levels and/or courses often have more standards present than can be highly monitored. To address these issues we are engaging in a systematic district-wide process to prioritize teaching and learning in order to ensure a guaranteed and viable curriculum.
