The San Carlos School District is Preparing Students for Success in the 21st Century

Today was a great day as we visited numerous classrooms in preparation for our upcoming January-March research.  Thanks to the incredible people of the San Carlos School District, we are being given all access to talk with teachers about design thinking and their dreams of a 21st century school.  As a result, we’d like to share the bold and exciting vision of SCSD:

A Vision for Our Children
The San Carlos School District shall provide an innovative and engaging learning experience that fosters the development of the Whole Child to ensure all students are well prepared for success in the 21st Century, as evidenced by:
• Reaching their highest academic, social, emotional, intellectual, and physical potential; and
• Becoming problem solvers, critical thinkers, risk-takers, designers, collaborators, and innovators; and
• Developing into contributing, empathic citizens and leaders who are responsible stewards of their world and care about equity and justice, both locally and worldwide.
