Core Academic Teams

Core Academic Teams:  Working Together

Core academic teachers (i.e. math, English language arts, social studies, and science) will be organized into integrated teams. The teams will share common students and a common planning period. Teaming allows teachers to:

  • Work collaboratively to identify which students need academic supports or enrichments.
  • Problem-solve to provide necessary academic or behavioral interventions.
  • Ensure that deliberate connections are made between each subject area for a more cohesive educational experience for all middle school students.
