Unleashing Each Student's Potential - ACPS Horizon 2020

One Student-Centered Strategic Goal - All ACPS students will graduate having mastered the lifelong learning skills they need to succeed as 21st century learners, workers and citizens.

Seven Pathways to Life Long Learning

Our pathways are two things: Commitments for our professional learning - how will we learn to be contemporary educators - and promises to our students - what kind of educational environment are we building.
Seven Pathways
1. Choice & Comfort
2. Instructional Tolerance
3. Universal Design of Learning
4. Maker-Infused Curriculum
5. Project/Problem/Passion-Based Learning
6. Interactive Technologies
7. Connectivity
