Purpose and Work Streams 2017-18
Integrated Supports and Accelerated Learning: Summer School
ISAL Theory of Action: If ISAL integrates and coordinates tools, resources, technology, and culturally and linguistically responsive supports in partnership with other CO departments year round, then principals, teachers, and other school staff will be better able to reduce barriers to teaching and learning while simultaneously accelerating positive outcomes and healthy development so that all our students will graduate college, career, and community ready.

MMSD Summer School - a part of the Integrated Supports and Accelerated Learning Department - is a year-long strategy that works strategically and collaboratively with multiple areas of MMSD to 1) engage students in high-quality instruction, 2) provide critical additional learning time, 3) accelerate growth in key skills, and 4) build students' self-efficacy so that all students will graduate college, career, and community ready.
