Developing out student;s skill to empower them for the future.
Developing Portrait of a Graduate (PoG) attributes is a high priority for FCPS. While still focusing on academics, the Portrait of a Graduate also allows FCPS to move beyond the high-stakes testing environment and develop the skills in our students that employers are seeking for their workforce. These skills are necessary for all children to succeed in our rapidly changing, increasingly diverse, and interconnected world.
A goal of FCPS is to provide opportunities for students to demonstrate learning in more authentic ways. Teachers in FCPS are enhancing learning opportunities to include the attributes of Communicator, Collaborator, Ethical and Global Citizen, Creative and Critical Thinker, and Goal-Directed and Resilient Individual.
Liberty Middle School staff plans to focus on developing student’s Portrait of Graduate (PoG) skills. Teachers will be creating learning opportunities that allow students to apply the attributes of a Communicator, Collaborator, Ethical and Global Citizen, Creative and Critical Thinker, and Goal-Directed and Resilient Individual. Students will also have opportunities for meaningful reflection about their growth in these skills.
