College and Career
What does it mean to be college and career ready? That definition has changed over the last few years from relying on strictly academic indicators to now combining the latter with career indicators. Our school vision was designed by our school community to incorporate more than just academic standards. The document below is a proposal to the Illinois State Board of Education. Ridgewood is both excited and supportive of the research-based work done to create these academic and career indicators. Our focus, along with a significant amount of work from the district level to the classroom level, is to equip our students with the skill set needed to thrive in the next phase of their life, whatever that may be.
