First Goal:

ABRSD Goal #2: Our students will have equitable opportunities and tools to learn.

  • Continue to build educator capacity to reach and teach all students.

  • Essential Question: How might we use strength-based practices to support student learning?

    McCarthy-Towne Equity Goal:

    In order to increase “opportunities for one on one interaction between students and teachers, leading to stronger relationships(Ferguson, Desjarlais, & Meyer, 2000), we will successfully create a co-teaching model with one of two Sixth Grade teams in order to significantly reduce all pull out services for most Sixth Grade students receiving supported learning services in the McCarthy-Towne Learning Center.This model embodies the idea that “all students can benefit from the additional supports, resources, and diversity in the classroom (Ferguson, Desjarlais, & Meyer, 2000), and it will illustrate the value and impact of inclusive practices to the entire school community.

We will continue to build and develop meaningful and productive relationships in professional practice between and among support staff, including special educators, and general educators.

A. Implement a system of inclusive co-teaching at the Sixth Grade
