Background: Ambitious Instruction: Accelerating Learning was implemented at the start of the 21-22 school year. The plan is focused on three levers. The levers are Formative Practices, Explicit Instruction, and Engagement. Ambitious Instruction: Accelerating Learning embodies the district’s Five Priorities for Success, focusing on increasing academic achievement and accountability, developing our staff, and strengthening communication and collaboration.

The Ambitious Instruction Plan is implemented through three cycles of professional learning. While all cycles are integrated, each cycle has a specific area of focus. Cycle 1 had a focus on intentional planning. Cycle 2 focused on scaffolding, and Cycle 3 focused on empowering students.

To track the progress of Ambitious Instruction: Accelerating Learning, a non-evaluative Walk-Through Rubric was designed to gather feedback on how to better support teachers and leaders in understanding and implementing teacher ​learning of best practices.

The attached presentation provides an update on the work, accomplishments, and future goals of Ambitious Instruction: Accelerating Learning.
