What do students need to know and be able to do?
How will we know when they have learned it?
What will we do when they haven’t learned it?
What will we do when they already know it?
These are the questions that BISD educators ask themselves as they strive to help every student succeed academically. Professional learning is the key that unlocks the answers. Teachers, principals, central office staff, the superintendent and the board collaborate in a variety of learning teams to:
develop classroom, campus and district leadership
allocate resources of time, money and personnel
analyze performance data
incorporate research-based tools and practices
evaluate growth and improvement
design and implement effective strategies
develop deep understanding of learning
provide educational equity for all learners
involve families in the education of their children
