Woodburn School District Theory of Action
if we focus on the K-12 instructional core within our bi-literate, intercultural context;
and if we learn collaboratively at all levels;
and if we align our K-12 system with a proficiency-based approach,
then we will have a high academic achievement that is equitable for all students.
