Lindbergh takes part in Success-Ready Students Work Group

February 2022

The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) recently formed the Success-Ready Students Work Group to develop learning and assessments that support every student in college, career, and workplace readiness.

This group is studying Competency-Based Learning, a model that centers on instruction that meets students' individual needs, where students advance based on mastery of standards, and not simply time spent at school. The group will also work to redesign the state’s current assessment to better support students and educators and inform families about each student’s individual learning progress.

This work reinforces Lindbergh’s own journey, which began during the 2017-18 school year, and is designed to implement more meaningful ways to measure student growth.

Dr. Jill Lawson, executive director of assessment and student services, will serve as a work group adviser, sharing Lindbergh’s progress as a model for other districts.
