This year, Hillview is piloting a "Personalized Learning Academy" in one of our 6th-grade academies. This pilot responds to one of MPCSD's Strategic Directions, which states, "Build a greater understanding of mastery or competency based models of instruction and provide the conditions for teachers, grade levels, departments and schools to innovate, including the implementation of Personalized Learning Platforms where possible and appropriate." Vesuvius Academy, which we sometimes refer to as the "PLA," is where this pilot is taking place. The Vesuvius teachers, as well as Ms. Maia Bromberg, the math teacher in Olympus Academy, are utilizing the Summit Basecamp Personalized Learning Platform. For more information about this pilot, please use the following links.
