Competency Based Education

A Brief Introduction

EKES is implementing Competency Based Education (CBE). We have taken several initial steps and created several structures to support this work:

  1. Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) provide teachers time to meet, examine problems of practice, and to plan future instruction utilizing CBE.
  2. East Kingston Elementary School Partnership Advisory Council (PAC) is a committee of parents and teachers that are working together to build understanding of CBE in the community.
  3. Teachers from EKES serve on district-wide subject area committees to develop a common vision of CBE, in ELA, math, science and social studies, across our SAU.
  4. Teachers are piloting Project Based Learning at each grade level.
