Lillian Drive School to Pilot Multiage (Grades 3 and 4) Classroom for 2015-2016 School Year

One classroom at Lillian Drive School in September will look very different from the others come September 2015. Mr. Maglione will be teaching a multigrade classroom for students in grades 3 and 4. The goal of the program is to allow for a more individualized instructional approach best suited for each child's needs and learning style. In addition to the traditional grade level curricula, students will be afforded opportunities for academic explorations related to their own interests via implementation of the "genius hour" program. Each child will also be provided their own Chromebook and will utilize Google Classroom as our online learning platform. CBS News did a nice piece on the new classroom that can be accessed via the link below. For more information please contact the Superintendent's Office.
