Interestingly, co-writing the “rough daft” for the NEASC report on Assessment, Indicator 4 was easier than I thought it would be because of New Canaan High School’s responsive and collaborative culture. It was amazing to review the many Indicator 4 documents and artifacts. Teachers are integrating NCHS Core Values, Beliefs and Expectations, as well as Partnership for 21st Century Skills (P21).
