Buena Vista School District

Learning

The Buena Vista School District aims to provide both a rigorous and responsive education to every learner. This is accomplished by designating clear targets for learning and matching these with local assessments that evaluate a student's mastery of these targets (C-TACHs).
 
Rigor also includes: meaningful and innovative invitations to learn; learners in the more global 21st century need opportunity to collaborate, invent, problem-solve and make decisions.
Responsive Education means: a commitment to the individual learning needs and styles of students. BVSD teachers have a "whatever it takes" stance in supporting students in reaching the peak of success.
Content Targets: BVSD has developed Content Targets and Assessment Checklists (C-TACHs) to document the essential learning for grade spans (PreK-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-12) and the specific learning targets for each grade. Click here to view C-TACHs by grade. Click here to view C-TACHs by subject.
