Vision of a Learner
Monticello School District has spent the past year working with students, staff, parents, administrators and the school board to define the outcomes we want for all learners in Monticello School District. We currently have a draft that includes four pillars of a Vision of a Learner that can be found below. At this time, we are seeking community feedback. Please take a look at the attribute categories below, then use this form to provide feedback.
The 4 attribute categories of the Vision of a Monticello Learner are:
Integrity: Learners make ethical decisions by carefully considering how their words, actions, thoughts, and habits shape their character and affect their community and environment.
Communication: Learners can communicate and collaborate with purpose and intent in a variety of modes and formats through effective reading, writing, listening and speaking skills.
Critical thinking: Learners can apply knowledge to analyze, plan, and communicate solutions to real-life, complex challenges.
Resilience: Learners take risks by creating rigorous goals, persist through challenges, and bounce back when they encounter setbacks.
