K-8 Programming

K-8 Program

Mission:  To effectively utilize World Class methodologies to help students acquire 21st-century skills and a strong educational foundation through a personalized approach. Students, in collaboration with a team that targets the needs of the whole student, become responsible citizens who contribute to our society and lead meaningful and productive lives.

Goal: The goal of eDCSD’s K-8 program is to effectively utilize personalized programming using targeted academic and social-emotional intervention to help students develop a strong foundation. As students become more independent learners and demonstrate success, their learning pathway becomes more autonomous and flexible. eDCSD’s K-8 programming uses a teamed approach to supporting student’s academic progress and personalized learning pathway. Teachers on the K-8 team collaborate on learning opportunities and interventions to ensure a wraparound plan each year, and also a smooth transition from elementary to middle school programming. Further, the K-8 team collaborates to ensure students transition to any of eDCSD’s high school programming options are supported. Ultimately, the goal is that with appropriate supports, students make adequate progress towards their personalized learning goals.
