What is an "Accelerated" school?
Imagine a school... in which all children excel to high levels, regardless of their background. Imagine a school that treats all children as gifted and builds on their strengths through enrichment strategies, independent research, problem solving, science, writing, music, and art. Imagine a school in which all members of the school community develop a vision of their ideal school and in which they collaborate to achieve that dream by making major decisions about curriculum, instructional strategies and school organization. Imagine a school where ideas count. Let your imagination go as far as it can and you have discovered the accelerated school.
Accelerated Schools Plus Principles
In an Accelerated School , all members of the school community are invited to share in the leadership of the school. The parents, the students, school staff members, and community members develop the vision for the school; understand its challenges and work together to achieve its goals. Accelerated Schools are based on the following three principles:
UNITY OF PURPOSE– The whole school community decides on the goals for the school which become the target for everyone's efforts. Everyone in the school is pulling in the same direction.
EMPOWERMENT COUPLED WITH RESPONSIBILITY– All members of the school community help to make important educational decisions, share responsibility for implementing those decisions, and share responsibility for the outcome of those decisions.
BUILDING ON STRENGTHS–There is a commitment to looking for and building on each person's strengths in the school community.
