PMSS Common Purpose
PMSS Common Purpose 2008-2013
Where we started... Dec. 2007
Over 7 months we gathered input from staff, parents, and students about the PMSS graduate profile, learning beliefs, our school’s strengths, areas of weakness to address, barriers, new opportunities, future needs for students and external factors.
Collected authentic data that targeted 8 big ideas for student learning and directions for the school.
Developed a list of attributes for PMSS Graduate Profile.
The focus of our PMSS Common Purpose is our LENS.
This LENS is to develop a “Balanced Learner”.
The Curriculum Leaders synthesized the 8 big ideas into 4 Theme areas with specific focus groups for each theme.
