Visioning, professional learning and core planning workshops were held in early 2019 to develop the District’s Vision for the Learning Environment, as well as Guiding Principles for its campuses, to build a strong foundation for developing the Ed Specs.
Tomorrow’s learning model and practices will look very different from today. The District's vision for the future of education is described in detail using two exercises from the workshop.
Inclusivity, equity, student centered accountability, partnerships and innovation provide design direction and work towards District-wide parity.
The Visioning Workshop was followed by qualitative interviews with educational leadership and teachers representing school levels and programs. The essential question asked was, "How will Culver City prepare students for THEIR future through your built environment, learning model and teaching practices?" Using these interviews, the committee developed a deeper understanding of how students learn in the future.
