Partnerships, technology, learning strategies, comprise education plan

Student Services Director Christy Hild said community partnerships and technology are part of a long-range plan that will prepare today's students to be tomorrow’s leaders.

Hild’s presentation about long range planning of student learning was presented during the March 12, 2019 school board meeting.  Learning strategies that extend beyond academics such as social emotional-learning play an integral role in fully preparing students.   Implementing cutting edge technology that is viable in a multitude of careers and used so frequently in personal communication is also important.

 “Community partnerships with Mattoon in Motion, social-emotional learning and technology provide exciting opportunities for our students and staff,” said Hild.  “In order for our students to become leaders in our community, it is important that we meet them where they are and prepare them for the future.”

She added, “Involving students in meaningful ways to interact with our community leaders will strengthen relationships between our current and future leaders of Mattoon.”

Tim Condron, assistant superintendent for business and former curriculum director, Mattoon Community Unit School District 2, shared the district’s vision of supporting student learning by enhancing the tools students and staff use to learn.

 “We are eager to share a long-range plan with the school board that will allow our students and staff to interact, exchange ideas, and learn from one another through technology and one to one devices,” said Condron.   “We are on the journey of taking essential steps towards personalized learning and growth for all of our students.”
