Description from the 2019 State of the Division report

"Baker-Butler Elementary School teachers are striving to create personalized learning experiences for students through engaging, passion-based, and data-informed approaches for instruction. Staff build individual relationships with students and families, and they utilize common pre- and post-assessments to ensure that each child is appropriately challenged, supported and empowered in their educational journey. Professional development for teachers focuses on (1) the effective use of Professional Learning Communities to better identify and monitor student performance levels with curricular expectations; (2) best practices for Culturally Responsive Teaching and Trauma-Responsive Care; and (3) short and long-term Responsive Classroom goals and strategies."
