Technology access through Broadband Ohio: At the start of the pandemic in March 2020, the district made several quick technology moves to position students and staff for success. The district purchased additional Chromebooks to secure a Chromebook for every student to use at home. They also employed a technology coach to support teachers in learning new programs, and to support families and students with technology needs at home. The district purchased additional educational apps and online platforms to support project-based learning work. Through a Broadband Ohio grant with the Miami Valley Educational Computing Association and the Village of Yellow Springs, the district deployed hot spots to families and installed multiple Wi-Fi access points in the community to support high-speed connections.
Deeper learning through project-based learning and community partnerships: The district’s commitment to equity and deeper learning is evident in our commitment to Project-Based Learning (PBL). Beginning in kindergarten, students have PBL experiences that support academic and social-emotional growth. Strong and strategic community partnerships, (e.g. Agraria Center for Regenerative Practice), position students to master academic standards while engaging in relevant PBL with a community partner.
Access to rigorous and advanced coursework: The district offers an array of advanced courses for students. Two College Credit Plus (CCP) courses are taught on-site, as well as ten Advanced Placement (AP) courses. 56 percent of students graduate having taken at least one AP course.
