The kids aren’t in the halls yet, but the Cassopolis Public Schools have been busy.
Superintendent Dr. Angela Piazza says the schools are implementing a new curriculum at the schools. She told ABC 57 that the district is rolling out a New Tech curriculum for grades 4 through 9 when the school year begins on September 4th. The remaining grades will be added next year.
The new curriculum is very hands-on, centered on project-based learning with a lot of community involvement. Eventually, an Early-Middle College Program at Ross Beatty High School will offer students a college degree or career certificate, as well as a fifth year of high school, allowing students to graduate with an associate’s degree. Applications for that program will begin in January.
