The Swallow School Mission statement expresses a commitment to providing each student with the personalized learning experiences that will ensure success in life.
Together we will inspire each other to achieve excellence as self-directed, problem-solving, responsible, lifelong learners.
A strategy associated with this goal is:
We will design and deliver curriculum and instruction based on a review of student data and ongoing assessment that reflects current research and best practice in order to meet the needs of all students.
Over the past several years, school staff have participated in reviewing state, national and international standards and learning benchmarks as well as Swallow student assessment data to inform District curriculum and learning targets. At the classroom level, the curriculum is the basis for instructional design, coupled with ongoing student assessment data--both on staff created assessments as well as data from other state or nationally normed assessments.
