In this Site Seminar, participants and members of the Renaissance community will engage together in an exploration of our guiding question: How do we create a truly integrated school: one that moves all students to academic achievement, ensures a sense of belonging for all students, teaches students to dismantle racism and fosters an appreciation of diversity in thought and in people?
Always a “work in progress,” Renaissance does have results about which to be proud: 100% college acceptance for all 8 of our graduating classes, MCAS results that surpass the district by 10 to 30 percentage points depending on the subject and grade, and national recognition for our focus on character and the positive culture of the school. Even with this success, we continue to grapple with many questions about how to move all our students to high levels of achievement in the three dimensions. The guiding question for our site seminar captures both the work we have done in the last few years as well as the work we still need to do. Anchored in Core Practice 34: Cultivating a Positive Professional Culture, this Site Seminar will allow participants to analyze key moves that Renaissance leaders and teacher have made, those that are proactive and strategic and those that come when difficult situations arise. Participants will have the opportunity to think deeply about moves toward equity and inclusion that they might make in their own schools and classrooms.
