This was the second summit we have hosted and it brought in educators from around the country who want to learn more about our Competency Based System (CBS). Members of school boards, superintendents, principals and teachers all want to know why our form of personalized learning is working so well for our children.
While we are rightfully proud of our work, the summit is not simply a showcase for our work or an occasion to “toot our own horn”; it’s much more important than that.
Central to CBS is our Learning Model that provides a framework for our work and is a good reference point when we are making important decisions.
As I told guests at the summit, Continuous Improvement is a critical component of our work and we embrace the opportunity to have outsiders come to WPS to not only learn from us but also push us to explain why we are doing things in a certain way and even consider alternative suggestions.
I hope you will find the time to read up on the summit and take a moment to watch the Question and Answer sessionexpertly moderated by Board of Education Vice President Joe Davidick.
You might hear some answers to questions that you have always wanted to ask.
