"Imagine the Possibilities" school approved by Board

Posted February 14, 2019

The Kyrene School District Governing Board voted Tuesday, February 12, to approve the implementation of a program with two primary goals:

 

  • Engage students in a dynamic learning environment that promotes academic excellence and prepares them to be innovators and leaders of tomorrow.
  • Deploy educators in non-traditional ways by creating new roles and staffing structures which will attract and retain high-quality staff and reinvigorate the teaching profession.


The program will be open to 120 students entering 3rd and 4th grades and will be housed in a small section of Kyrene de las Manitas during the prototype years. The learning space will be open and dynamic, equipped with furniture designed for flexibility and collaboration.

Much more information about the program can be found at www.kyrene.org/imagine, including answers to frequently-asked questions, videos, presentation slides, and details on how to apply for enrollment. Families are also invited to attend two upcoming informational nights:


Wednesday, February 20, 2019 – 6:00-7:30 p.m.
Monday, March 4, 2019 – 6:00-7:30 p.m.


Both informational nights will be held at the Kyrene School District main office, 8700 S. Kyrene Rd., Tempe, AZ. Interested families are strongly encouraged to attend.
