Background: All Fairfax County schools are also required to complete an access and opportunity goal as part of their School Innovation and Improvement Plan (SIIP) and can also capture additional goals.  These are shown below.

 

Access & Opportunity End of Year SMARTR Outcome

Goal: CRES has been chosen as a PBL/Presentation of Learning field test school for 2nd and 5th grades. This has been a collaborative initiative with FCPS for the past few years. Over the last five years, our classroom teachers have implemented at least two PBL per year as part of our SIIP goals. Colvin Run ES will continue this momentum to ensure vertical consistency across our school, support the FCPS POGPOL initiative and support the identification, integration, and presentation of Portrait of a Graduate skills.

Strategy 1: Students will participate in Project-based/Problem-based (PBL) learning opportunities connected to the curriculum at each grade level.

Strategy 2: Students will utilize their grade level specific Portrait of a Graduate strategies to question, investigate, and reflect on their thinking across the curriculum.
