The Level Up Academy curriculum reflects the needs of students from the entire spectrum of learning requirements and is documented and tracked for each student through personalized learning plans. Curriculum mapping is done by the teachers within the Teacher Professional Practice to ensure alignment with state standards.
While parts of the curriculum consist of online leveled games and the use of the digital platform instructional and assessment tools, the teacher and student explore multiple approaches to achieve these goals. In language arts and other activities where experimentation, reading and writing on paper are still the best method for learning, traditional classroom manipulatives, books and paper are used as well.
The teachers collectively choose behavior and classroom management systems designed to create an engaging school community based on respect and empathy. Restorative Practices, Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS), and the school's motto of weCODE is implemented school-wide.
Our weCODE expectations are the foundation of daily life at Level Up Academy.
Both adults and children in our community are accountable to these expectations -
Cooperation, Ownership, Do Your Best, Everyone Matters
