🍎LEARNING IN ACTION🍎 Superintendent John D. Millay observed teachers and students diving into daily #Fundations and #Benchmark English Language Arts (ELA) lessons at J. D. Parker Elementary School this morning. Earlier this year, the Martin County School Board adopted new K-12 instructional materials for ELA that are fully aligned to the Florida Department of Education's B.E.S.T. standards. The complete curriculum adoption was funded in part with proceeds generated by the half-mill property tax referendum that was approved by Martin County voters in 2018. "Student engagement has been off the charts," Dr. Millay shared. "This is what we love to see when participating in learning walks and observing instruction. More of that!" #ALLINMartin👊
