> Students create and assume ownership for their respective personalized learning and success paths and are able to communicate their progress relative to their individualized learning goals.

> Students provide evidence of mastery through relevant performance tasks and common assessments.
> Continuous feedback is provided to students, teachers, administrators and parents through the teaching and learning and the data warehouse.
