About the Initiative
With the Race to the Top (RTTT) District Grant investment, our Bright Future for Galt Students Initiative is becoming a reality. We are accomplishing the initiative through the following significant changes:
Personalized Learning Plans (PLPs)
All students will have Personalized Learning Plans (PLPs) to support their growth based on strengths, interests and academic needs and aspirations related to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Technology tools and courseware will support the planning development and access for student, parent and teacher use and access anytime and anywhere.
Blended Learning is a combination of conventional and online classroom methods to better prepare students for the future. The Bright Future for Galt Students effort reflects a unique blend of learning options based upon individual student strengths, interests and needs. Student instruction includes face-to-face teaching, virtual or digital learning tools, classroom or community learning experiences that have a purpose and address core subject content areas as well as problem solving, creativity and collaboration.
School Libraries Become Bright Future Learning Centers (BFLCs)
During the 2012-2013 school year, economic challenges resulted in no funding for our school libraries. Sadly, the libraries did not open to begin the school year. Thanks to ongoing and relentless fundraising led by parents, students and staff, and supported through local businesses, our school libraries re-opened in October 2012. With the 4-year grant, we were able to increase hours by being open during school, after school, and during summers at every school location across the community of Galt beginning in July 2013.
All BFLCs have mobile technology devices available for personalized learning and teamwork. The BFLCs will support expanded learning and enrichment efforts through books, digital resources, and virtual learning for students and families. View our Directory of BFLCs and come visit us.
