Future Ready Pledge

The Future Ready Schools® (FRS) District Pledge is a commitment by superintendents on behalf of their districts to collaborate with educators, families, and community members to ensure all students are ready for the future. FRS provides school leaders with a set of customized tools and resources on policies and practices necessary for the adoption of learner-centered strategies that result in deeper learning outcomes.

The Fairview Park City School District pledges to:

1. Foster a culture of collaborative leadership.

FRS district leadership teams are composed of leaders at all levels who work collaboratively to transform teaching and learning to a more learner-centered approach.

2. Provide rigorous academic content for all students to build life skills.

In a FRS district, curriculum, instruction, and assessment are tightly aligned with and designed to engage students in personalized, technology-empowered, deeper learning experiences that build life-long learning skills.

3. Empower personalized professional learning opportunities.

FRS districts strive to provide all educators with access to professional learning experiences that are personal and authentic.

4. Help schools and families transition to anytime, anywhere learning.

High-quality, high-speed technology and infrastructure within a FRS school district are essential to advancing authentic, learner-centric experiences.

5. Rethink the use of space and time.

Learner-centric experiences in a FRS district require changes in the way instructional time is allotted and how the learning space is designed.

6. Implement thoughtful data and privacy policies and protocols.

Data privacy and security are foundational elements of learner-centered digital learning. FRS districts ensure that sound data governance policies are enacted to ensure privacy, safety, and security of confidential data.

7. Focus on long-term sustainability.

In FRS districts, the transition to learner-centered, technology-empowered experiences requires strategic short- and long-term budgeting as well as creative leveraging of resources.

8. Share and mentor for continuous improvement.

FRS districts understand that transformation is a process, not an event. No matter where FRS districts may fall on the implementation continuum, they are working diligently toward a system of continuous improvement districtwide, with emphasis on its lowest-performing schools and student subgroups.
