Catapult Learning is looking forward to attending Milwaukee Public Schools Title I/II Nonpublic Vendor Selection Fair at North Division High School in Milwaukee, WI on February 25, 2015. This years event will the hosted by the MPS Office of Finance – Title I. The purpose of this fair is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal and significant opportunity to obtain a high quality education. Milwaukee Public Schools is committed to preparing all students for college and careers. High academic expectations – high standards, in other words – are an essential part of that commitment. MPS’ Comprehensive Literacy Plan, first implemented in 2010-11, and the district’s Comprehensive Math/Science Plan, first implemented in 2011-12, are aligned to the rigorous Common Core State Standards. More than 45 states, including Wisconsin, have adopted the Common Core.
The Common Core State Standards eliminate the gap between what students have learned and mastered at high school graduation and what they must know to begin technical college/university and careers. The new standards ensure our students are competitive with other students from around the state, the country and the world. Under the standards, students learn in-depth, mastering critical concepts. They use critical thinking skills to become true problem solvers, looking for evidence as they read complex texts.
If you are also planning to attend this conference make sure to stop and ask one of our representatives to find out how Catapult Learning can help your educators and their students Achieve Beyond Expectations!
