BIS Redesign Grant through Mass IDEAS
Barnstable Intermediate School (BIS) was recently awarded one of three Implementation Grants for school redesign through Mass IDEAS (Innovating Design in Education for All Students), an initiative of Next Generation Learning Challenges. For more information see the Mass IDEAS Press Release.
BIS staff has participated in workgroups to focus on redesign strategies to ensure equity for all learners at BIS. The strategies we focused on to make these changes revolve around two categories: Relationships and Rigorous, Relevant, Engaged Learning.
All staff at BIS continues their learning through professional development opportunities offered throughout the school year.
