Educational and organizational research states inconclusively that individuals working in collaborative teams will improve their practice faster, and will enjoy higher levels of achievement than if they worked alone.
Here at CSDA we are heavily committed to collaborative processes, and have witnessed considerable gains in individual and team practice already this year. We know that it is through staff collaboration that we will take our school 'to the next level'.
At CSDA, our teachers and teams attend weekly Professional Learning Community (PLC) meetings, and Team Planning meetings. For selected individuals, there are weekly Administrative Team meetings, Faculty Leadership Team meetings, and Intervention Team meetings. As we bring our minds together, staff members can contribute their unique experience, perspectives, and talents to the collective work of the group.
At CSDA, we work together, learn together, and grow together. Captain Samuel Douglass Academy: we ARE a collaborative learning community!
