2018-2019 Assessment Calendar
What is ASD doing for Social and Emotional Health district-wide?
1.) We have addressed social-emotional needs through the introduction of a comprehensive curriculum that builds from five strands of Self-Awareness, Self-Management, Social Awareness, Relationship Skills, and Responsible Decision Making. You can read more by going to the Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning at www.Casel.org.
2.) Aspen Elementary is implementing MindUP, school-wide.
3.) Aspen Middle School is continuing to use Skier Traits to support students.
4.) Aspen High School is focusing on the SEE (Social Emotional and Ethical) curriculum from Emory University and have created lessons that will be shared with Ex-Ed groups twice a month. This practice in social emotional learning will be paired with the highly regarded Ex-Ed philosophy.
In order to give each content area the deep attention it deserves, curriculum will be reviewed and analyzed using a cycle approach. This approach allows us to collaboratively dig-deep with laser-like focus into a handful of content areas at a time, study outcomes, revise, and review and align quality, engaging resources. It also allows us time to implement new resources and analyze their impact over a course of time. The cycle is in alignment with the adoption of the new state standards from the Colorado Department of Education.
