CCS will integrate several researched based, and innovative education models (blended-mastery, project-based learning, advisement, permaculture, character education, and service-learning) and enhance them with a sustainable vision, which serves the public and thrives on community participation. We will ensure that all students receive the appropriate level and type of support through the strategic utilization of technology, community interaction, and structured classroom time.
Personal learning plans and projects developed in collaboration with an advisor allow education to be tailored to each student’s unique learning style and passions. Learning environments will be fluid and flexible to accommodate the needs of all learners, including both self-directed and group exploration. Technology will be utilized as a key tool in directing and reinforcing individual learning and student mastery. Global awareness, communication, and collaboration will require that students become informed and competent users of technology and it will be integrated along with core standards.
CCS addresses an urgent need for integrating evolving models of learning for a more efficient and cost effective approach to prepare children, especially those of marginalized population subsets, to thrive in 21st century society.
