Personalized Learning

Flexibility and Options for Middle and High School Students, Staff and Parents

 

The San Ramon Valley Unified School District is exploring a number of personalized learning ideas that focus on flexibility and options for middle and high school students in the coming years. The District will be updating this webpage with information and news as the exploration of these ideas evolve.

2017-2018 SRVUSD Leadership Priorities

Clearly and effectively communicate and execute our Framework for Excellence, with a customer service mindset, while holding ourselves accountable as leaders.

 

  • Offer a cohesive curriculum, instruction and assessment program aligned to State Standards with an emphasis on each student’s personal and academic growth while eliminating barriers.

 

  • Deliberately prioritize and provide a world-class education where our focus on Inclusion, Cultural Responsiveness and Response to Intervention ensures that each student, employee and family feels safe and respected.

 

  • Expand opportunities for student, family and staff options, improve student wellness, and enhance staff working conditions while potentially saving the district millions of dollars.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

  • Continually evaluate results and cautiously allocate resources that lead to ongoing improvement.

VISION

 

1. Increase student, staff and family options

2. Improve student wellness (reduce overscheduling and student stress)

3. Reduce class size with no increase in general fund expense

Assumptions

The ideas reflect the following key assumptions:

  • Most ideas would be optional for all students, families and staff

  • Implementation would begin in 2018-2019; some may be phased in over multiple years

  • More individualized scheduling options provided for all students

  • No increased costs associated with any idea

  • No teacher or staff layoffs associated with these ideas

Ideas - Middle and High School
