Virtual Learning & Instruction
The Kingsway Regional School District is committed to sustained improvement and recognizes the ever-evolving needs of our students and families. Instructional technology and virtual learning are not new trends, rather they are educational supports that have the capacity to personalize instruction and improve student learning outcomes.
With an emphasis on equity and opportunity, we recognize the diversity of students and the variety of learning needs in each of our classrooms. We seek to get to know our students through a combination of relationship building and available student data, so we may always operate in the best interest of the student and their social-emotional and learning outcomes. We believe not all students learn at the same pace or by the same method. Consequently, we commit to using blended learning strategies, differentiating our instruction, and embedding opportunities for personalized learning to allow all students to master the standards. Additionally, advanced learners have unique experiences to work more deeply with content and skills in authentic ways.
Moving Forward Strategically
In 2016, Kingsway engaged a variety of stakeholders to develop a strategic plan that remains guiding force in the 2021-2022 school year. The recently adopted extension, Vision 2022: Promising Excellence focuses the work of blended learning pilot, the effective integration of instructional technology, and our committment to provide students with high quality learning experiences with the following strategic priorities:
