Elevate Building on Five Star Success

The fall ELEVATE engagement sessions asked participants to tell a story when the district or a school did right by a student. Storytellers were then asked to name strengths of the district rooted within their stories. The core team synthesized the strengths into five emerging strengths, the language of which was surveyed online in March 2018. The following are the five strengths of the district per fall and spring feedback through the ELEVATE process, confirmed at the ELEVATE Summit in April 2018.
