2030 DESTINATION

2030 DESTINATION is our road map to making four possibilities a reality during this decade. We believe when these four possibilities become reality a noticeable transformation will be occurring in our school community. Our learning environments will be inspiring places for all learners. The climate, work being accomplished, learning taking place and the physical environments will be an inviting place for all learners to achieve extraordinary success.

POSSIBILITY 1

By 2030 C-A Schools will have transitioned to become a community school serving our whole community as a valued partner in the education, wellness and success of all learners from birth to adulthood.

POSSIBILITY 2

By 2030, C-A schools will be a place where space and time are flexible as students will be using a variety of technological tools in creating self-directed learning pathways to demonstrate life, career and college ready competencies.

POSSIBILITY 3

By 2030, all students will be developing a partnership with an international or domestic organization that results in a student designing and proposing a solution to a real world problem their organizational partner has.

POSSIBILITY 4

C-A students will be exemplary communicators, collaborators, critical and creative thinkers as well as have the attributes to self-direct their learning in any setting.

2030 DESTINATION MILE MARKERS

Our 2030 DESTINATION road map to making four possibilities a reality during this decade include a series of mile markers. These mile markers will guide our work as we progress towards turning our four possibilities into reality by 2030. Each mile marker encompasses behaviors and actions that will transform our culture(how we do things in C-A) so that ALL learners achieve extraordinary success.

Mile Markers:

  1. Being Whole Learner Focused

  2. Ensuring No Learner is Marginalized

  3. Being Future Focused

  4. Embedding a Social, Emotional Growth Model

  5. Targeted Resources

  6. Board of Education Priorities

  7. LINKS Goals

Timeline for Implementing Mile Markers

2025

The district in 2021 embarked on reviewing how its work aligned with the AASA Learning 2025 commission Report - An American Imperative: A New Vision of Public Schools. Our efforts were recognized by being designated as a lighthouse district. Read about our response to this recognition here.

We continue to embrace the collaborative work of the Learning 2025 cohort of demonstration systems since these desired outcomes make actionable mile markers towards our own Destination 2030.

Sharing our 2025 Work

We shared our work at the AASA Learning 2025 Summit in Washington DC in June 2022.

  • Slide deck providing an overview

    • By committing to our vision and mission we will share our story of how we are providing big school opportunities in a small school setting for every student. Focused on our readiness indicators we are adopting a life-span view of personal growth for every learner recognizing collecting growth data at every age and grade level is critical to ensure all students are ready for their futures. We will provide examples of how tending to the whole child can lead to improved graduation rates and overall performance. We will provide an overview of our five anchor strategies that provide our “how” every day connecting to our Learning 2025 work and our own 2030 Destination. Participants will leave with resources and tools they can take back to their school systems and adapt to their needs and direction.
