Here's What's New!
District Schools and Programs Brochure: An update to the community
Greetings from the Superintendent
NMCUSD is beginning to implement the New Common Core and 21st Century Standards to better prepare our children for their future. This new approach to teaching and learning will help our children develop 21st century skills, content knowledge and expertise.
Students will learn to build understanding across and among core subjects as well as 21st century interdisciplinary themes. There will be an emphasis on deep understanding rather than shallow knowledge. Our students will be engaged with the real-world data, tools and experts they will encounter in college, on the job, and in life. Students will learn by being actively engaged in solving meaningful problems and they will have multiple measures for demonstrating mastery.
This will require a new type of learning environment that promotes group, team and individual learning. Our schools will need to provide equitable access to quality learning tools, technologies and resources that promote both face-to-face and online learning. Each classroom will need to integrate these 21st century skills into classroom practice.
Our school facilities and technology infrastructure needs to be improved in order to provide these types of learning environments. Every child needs 21st century knowledge and skills to succeed as effective citizens, workers and leaders. Our future depends on our children’s success.
Please support your local schools and our efforts to improve our school facilities and technology. Everyone benefits in a community that has good schools and we are dedicated in our efforts to be a “District of Choice.”
