The Cedarburg School District provides a responsive education for each student. Proficiency levels and benchmarks are set and a variety of learning data and artifacts are used to track student progress over time. Principals and teacher leaders meet regularly to analyze student achievement data in relation to student growth over time. Educators within each of the schools ask themselves “How well do students respond to our instruction?” “How can we best respond to the variety of ways in which our students learn?” and “What interventions do we need to put in place to ensure successful learning over time?”
Instruction is differentiated to meet the needs of students at all levels of learning. When students are not progressing as well as expected, despite instructional differentiation in the classroom, we have a process that brings a team together to collaborate and plan interventions. This individual planning is part of our district-wide Response to Intervention process.
The Director of Curriculum and Instruction serves all five buildings as the Gifted and Talented Coordinator and each of the building principals oversee and coordinate programs and plans designed to meet the student needs in their buildings.
