SRVUSD board to review strategies for 'deep learning and innovation'

Also: County Teacher of the Year, harassment policy revisions, Native American Heritage Month

The San Ramon Valley school board is set Tuesday to hear a report detailing existing data on student confidence and success, and looking toward ways of implementing deep learning methods to assist with the district's strategic goals.

The "deep learning and innovation" report points to the need for San Ramon Valley Unified School District students going into the workforce of the near future to develop skills that foster in-depth understanding of challenging issues, as the landscapes of technology and workforce needs continue to rapidly change.

The report frames the kind of creative, analytical, and critical thinking skills desired in the workforce of the future as "six global competencies" -- character, citizenship, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity. It goes on to discuss how to foster these characteristics in pedagogy and learning environments, through partnerships and the leverage of technology.

The next steps for the district would be to implement deep learning techniques with these considerations in mind, and to adjust them accordingly as progress is monitored and the board receives further updates, according to district staff.

The San Ramon Valley Unified School District's regular meeting is set for Tuesday (Oct. 26) at 7 p.m. via Zoom. The agenda is available here.

Pray for school vouchers! Take your kids out of public school. It’s a cesspool of woke political virtue signaling nonsense. Forget about reading, math, English, public speaking and life management. Those are outdated white privileged subject matters. Look at your children’s study materials and curriculum. It’s starting. They are now offering classes on social activism and racially charged subjects in high school.
