The three pieces in this series, look at the transformation of Northern Cass School District, a rural district in North Dakota, to a competency education model.
- The Evolution of Competency-Based Transformation in Northern Cass outlines how the district gained support and prepared to begin the transformation
- Framing Habits of Work and Capstone Skills in Northern Cass examines how the district articulated, supported, and assessed “personal success skills”, sometimes called “habits of work”
- Transitioning to Standards-Based Grading explores how educators are implementing a new grading system and the subsequent challenges
As a whole, the series provides a peek into an implementation journey that will interest other district and school leaders undertaking similar changes.
