C2E pledges to be “Future Ready”

PARKER – Every Douglas County school is working to prepare students for the college or career pathway of their choice. Challenge to Excellence (C2E), however, recently became the first Douglas County School District (DCSD) school to join the U.S. Department of Education’s Future Ready initiative. The campaign aims to promote digital learning by providing resources and professional development for teachers.

The Future Ready initiative promotes using technology effectively within the educational environment. Participating schools are provided a roadmap to achieve successful personalized digital learning for every student, with the goal of ensuring students are successful in college, careers and citizenship. Among other things, Future Ready schools incorporate the infrastructure, devices, professional development, content and human capacity necessary to successfully implement the Department of Education’s ConnectED Initiative.
 
C2E signed the Future Ready agreement in Spring of 2015 and attended the Future Ready Conference in June 2015.

“Future Ready is more than a new buzzword in the education world. Here at C2E, being committed to Future Ready is our culture,” explains a new video created by the school. “Challenge to Excellence is believes in engaging its students, by immersing them in technology. By incorporating technology into all aspects of the education process, we increase student engagement and achievement.”

 

WATCH: C2E is creating a Future Ready environment for more personalized learning in the school environment.

 

Below are the Future Ready components, integrated into each participating school:

R-Robust and Rigorous Resources E-Engaged Students with Equitable Access A-Active Parents for Deeper Engagement D-Dedicated Educators Y-"Yes" Culture of Leadership
