BLENDED LEARNING IN MUSD SCHOOLS
Milpitas Schools and students are becoming national leaders in creating blended learning classrooms.
COMMON CORE STATE STANDARDS
Teachers and students are busy preparing for the Common Core State Standards. With the new Smarter Balance assessments being administered to students throughout California in the Spring of 2015, the MUSD community is working hard to make the transition. Our teachers and principals have spent the past two years attending workshops, conferences and in-services to learn more about the new standards. This year, teachers are working with the new standards as they use new curriculum units, new assessments such as i-Ready and move deeper into Project Based Learning to align with the Common Core expectations. This Spring, there will be no State testing that results in scores for students but rather a field test that will allow MUSD and the State to learn more about implementing the new assessments via computer.
