  • This school year, our focus is on Depth and Complexity. What does this mean? We want to be sure that students have plenty of opportunities to think critically, not just fly-by with basic skills. Some concrete examples of this are evaluating, applying, creating, and synthesizing. We will work closely with teachers and students to support student learning and appropriate levels of challenge. Several classrooms across PPS are focusing on scholarly behavior, flexible grouping, and independent research projects in order to meet student needs.
