At Indian Creek School District, we strive to “Provide the time and support students need to be successful”. We accomplish this by flipping the traditional equation of schooling, Time + Support = Learning around. Historically Time and Support are the constants and Learning is the
variable. At Indian Creek, we make Time and Support the variables and Learning the constant. Students will learn, it is our job to find the time and support they need to be successful.
|One way that we are providing support for our students is by implementing the “Leader In Me” school improvement model that focuses on the universal challenges of academics, culture and leadership. The initiative, which is provided by FranklinCovey Education of Salt Lake City,
Utah, will unfold over the next four years and incorporate teachers and youth to drive involvement among students and staff, build a high-trust environment in schools and student achievement and improve learning.
Practices are based on educator Stephen Covey’s book, “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People,” that include “Be Proactive” (taking control of choices and actions); “Begin with the End in Mind” (setting goals and visualizing what you want to achieve in the future); “Put First Things
First” (prioritizing your time and energy on what’s truly important to you); “Think Win-Win” (seeking solutions that benefit yourself and others and fostering a cooperative mindset that values collaboration, fairness and mutual success); “Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood” (listening, empathizing and trying to see things from other perspectives in order to build stronger relationships, resolve conflicts and find common ground); “Synergize” (embracing teamwork, cooperation and open-mindedness to create something greater than what can be
achieved alone); and “Sharpen the Saw” (taking care of your physical, mental and emotional well-being by engaging in activities that renew and recharge you to maintain balance, enhance personal growth and perform your best).
From innovative curriculum and programs such as our endangered salamander project at the high school, to our innovative learning programs for students and staff at all grade levels and buildings – we are proud to say that Indian Creek School District does the “right things right” and prepare our students for bright and exciting futures.
