The District has adopted a framework that guides instructional practices across all schools. This framework is based on the Art and Science of Teaching by Robert J. Marzano, which offers high-impact strategies that have been proven to be the most impactful in the classroom. These strategies are meant to create the conditions needed for students to exhibit growth in the classroom. Of the 43 strategies put forth by Marzano, the District has selected to focus on the 12 elements listed on this page and add others in the future.
