Academic Programs Group

Today members of the Academic Programs Group met to discuss ongoing initiatives within the district. Specifically, Mr. Gary Enrico (Saturday U), Ms. Kate Dominique (IB-Middle Years Program), and Ms. Jennifer Lopez (NCLB). The meeting centered on plans for expanding some aspects of the Saturday U program in terms of both inclusiveness as well as course offerings. A number of different ideas and proposals are being discussed with details to follow soon. MYP implementation is being monitored and assessed and progress is being discussed. Other programs that are a part of this group but were not discussed include LitLife; Read 180; and the John Hopkins Program.
