Dear Coronado Community,
Equity in education is when every student receives the resources needed to perform at an acceptable level, graduate, and acquire the skills for a successful future. Coronado kept inperson learning available as long as safely feasible in November until quarantine guidelines made it impossible to staff our classrooms. We have made every effort to provide laptops and Wi-Fi hotspots to students to continue their education interrupted, however, remote learning does not provide the same benefits as in-person, and social emotionally connecting and creating relationships is difficult.
Inclusion is an important component of educational equity. Every student should have the opportunity to attend the courses that interest them to achieve their goals. D11 is looking to the future and Coronado is aligned to have a big impact. To meet the needs of students, our community was invited to note the programs, pathways and subject matter which is most important to them and their students. Schools will commit to equitable opportunities for all learners with Colorado standards in all core subject areas, provide research-based instructional strategies, curriculum which follows grade-by-grade content, and skill sets comprised of social awareness, verbal communication,collaboration, problem solving, critical thinking and planning for success.
This is an exciting time as we align ourselves to those areas that Coronado excels. Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics programs are high performing . We will continue with our STEAM platform which is also supported by our strong FIRST Robotics Team partnerships to the hi-tech industries on the Westside. Our visual and performing arts programs draw students from all over the city. We have so much to offer. You may read more detailed information on the Academic Master Plan and Facilities Master Plan here. The district is holding meetings January through March to discuss and finalize plans for the future. Let your voice be heard. Coronado is your school!
