Guiding Principles

Truly effective schools, whether in face-to-face or distance learning environments, support the needs of ALL learners by making evidence-based, high impact instruction a consistent and common thread that connects all classrooms. Bend-La Pine Schools strives to provide all students an equitable and meaningful school experience by using these as our guiding principles:

  • Connections to Families and Students: Teaching and learning are most successful as a partnership between schools, students, and families.
  • Engaging Curriculum and Deeper Instruction: Instruction has a clear focus on priority standards that support coherent and meaningful learning.
  • Learning Intentions and Success Criteria: Students know where they are going in their learning, why the learning is important, and what counts as quality work.
  • Collaboration Among Students: Students have frequent opportunities within instruction to talk, share work, and engage with each other.
  • Evidence of Student Learning: Teachers use discussions, tasks and activities that provide clear evidence of each student’s learning
  • Feedback that Moves Learning Forward: Students receive actionable and positive feedback that provides them with specific next steps to move their learning forward.
  • Students as Owners of Their Learning: Instruction supports and builds toward students understanding, regulating, and monitoring their own learning.
