Initiatives for the HMS Equity & Inclusion Committee in 2020-2021:
- Representatives from Highland’s E&I Committee will sit on the district’s K-8 Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee Meetings held in November & February
- Begin exploration and review of text choices within the Language Arts curriculum
Teaching and Learning Standards
Clear & specific standards communicate to students, teachers & parents exactly what is expected for students to learn. The standards can be the vehicle for sharing & supporting many ways to help students learn. The Illinois Learning Standards define what all students in all Illinois public schools should know & be able to do in the seven core areas as a result of their schooling.
The curriculum in place at Libertyville District 70 is aligned with these Illinois Learning Standards. Our curriculum is located in our Academics section.
Culturally Responsive Teaching and Leading Standards
In December of 2020, the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) implemented new teaching standards to better serve diverse populations of students. The Culturally Responsive Teaching and Leading Standards ensure educators from all backgrounds can teach Illinois' increasingly diverse students. For more information, use the button links below.
