Duke University Research Affirms District's Academic Achievement Goals
The Johnson Creek School District has been focusing on ability-based learning for the past several years. Instead of grouping students solely by grade level, students are grouped by what we refer to as their "readiness" level. This allows students to access at their own rate, and not be held to average ability of the students in their grade level. Recently, Duke University published a study highlighting the benefits of this type of learning. This study is affirmation that the district has been very progressive in student learning and academic achievement; something we will always continue to do. You can read Duke's article here.
