KCAA will provide a learning environment based on documented research that active learning, experiential investigation and integrated arts are vital for the development of higher level thinking and of the enthusiastic engagement inherent in lifelong learning.
The school schedule will assure that specialists can plan units collaboratively with all teachers at every grade level. Students identified as struggling in any area will receive immediate assessment, counseling and assistance from classroom and specialist teachers, including the potential of special education identification and services.
KCAA will provide an array of excellent learning resources (in addition to DPS provided curricula) that support investigation and rigorous learning in all curricular areas, i.e., materials from Great Books, AIMS, GEMS, DigiBlocks and Great Source. The placement of students in Everyday Math, Connected Math and literacy will be based on their mastery of content, as documented by pretesting, not on age of child. Appropriately challenging materials will be readily available for advanced students in specific curricular areas, as well as specialized support materials for struggling students. Two librarian-staffed libraries, one in the elementary area, and one on fourth floor, will serve the research and independent reading needs of KCAA students, as well as housing excellent professional collections for teachers.
