This is the New Roots Charter School Community Outreach Coordinator. I meet all incoming families and get to know each and every young person both as a student and a person. We have dedicated teachers and our school is guided by the Education for Sustainability standards from the Cloud Institute For Sustainability Education. The following are abbreviated standards from their website and can be seen in the daily work of teachers and students. When embodied in school practices we are actively developing honesty, integrity and fairness in our students. See for yourself! contact Rebecca Cutter for a tour: firstname.lastname@example.org
|A| Students will develop the ability to discern with others what to preserve and what to change in order for future generations to thrive.
|B| Students will know and understand these rights and responsibilities and assume their roles of leadership and participation.
|C| Students will know and understand the dynamic nature of complex systems and change over time. They will be able to apply the tools and concepts of system dynamics and systems thinking in their present lives, and to inform the choices that will affect our future.
|D| Students will know and understand 21st century economic practices and will produce and consume in ways that contribute to the health of the financial, social, and natural capital.
|E| Students will be able to recognize and value the vital importance of the Commons in our lives and for our future. They will assume the rights, responsibilities, and actions to care for the Commons.
|F| Students will see themselves as interdependent with each other, all living things, and natural systems. They will be able to put their knowledge and understanding to use in the service of their lives, their communities, and the places in which they live.
|G| Students will design, implement, and assess actions in the service of their individual and collective visions.
|H| Students will know, understand, value, and draw from multiple perspectives in order to co-create with diverse stakeholders shared and evolving visions and actions in the service of a healthy and sustainable future locally and globally.
|I| Students will recognize and value the interrelationships between the social, economic, ecological, and architectural history of that place and contribute to its continuous health.
