South Kitsap School District has taken on the following initiatives....
Collaboration - Late Start Wednesdays: As a part of a new initiative to improve teaching and learning, South Kitsap School District staff will collaborate each Wednesday morning during the school year to analyze student data, review best instructional practices, and modify and improve instruction based on student needs. Starting with the 2007-08 school year, students will be asked to arrive at school 45 minutes late on Wednesdays.
Family Friendly Schools:In this era of high expectations and increased accountability, it is more critical than ever that we make our schools as welcoming and inclusive as they can be. Schools, families and communities must work in tandem to create a culture in which all students can thrive and reach their fullest potential. SouthKitsapSchool District has teamed up with the Family Friendly Schools Institute, a nationally recognized family engagement program, to help create a culture of family friendly schools in our district.
Developmental Assets:The South Kitsap Developmental Assets project was initiated in 2002 to encourage commitment and integrate this philosophy throughout the community. Search Institute has identified 40 positive experiences and qualities called “Developmental Assets,” that all of us have the power to bring into the lives of children and youth. For many, these assets have become the source of ideas and inspiration.
