During a very busy summer, Rancho Minerva’s faculty took some time to meet as a community and refocus on their commitments, expectations, and follow ups as a team. At the VILS summer convening, we used this framework to help district and school teams clarify roles and processes. It’s important that the entire school, from administrators to the newest teachers, be open and clear about the process. This will help keep the focus on the learning!

“Before we started our journey this year, we really wanted to identify our core values, what’s important to us, and where we’re going this year as a staff.” — Ben Gaines, Principal at Rancho Minerva
