X Other Reasons
The superintendent and staff shall keep abreast of developing technologies and teaching methodologies, investigate those likely to be of benefit to district pupils, and recommend them for board consideration.
The board recognizes that district pupils vary in learning styles and in ability. Therefore, the superintendent shall ensure that teaching staff adapt their instructional methods and arrangements to meet identified pupil needs and encourage maximum individual progress.
The superintendent shall ensure that district personnel, time and facilities are used in such a way as to provide the most favorable learning environment for all pupils.
Because the board believes that pupils can learn better and faster when the skills learned in one discipline are integrated into another, programs, projects and units of study shall be encouraged that require the use of reading, writing and mathematics skills in conjunction with other areas of study, such as music, art, science, etc. The board also encourages programs that call on various skill levels of several grades in one discipline, such as musical presentations, science fairs, and other similar efforts.
The board directs that instruction be planned and scheduled in such a way that there is minimum disruption of the school day, including movement between classes and conflicting activities.
Nonpublic School Pupils
Required services shall be delivered to nonpublic school pupils in facilities that are acceptable and convenient to staff and students.
