Redefining Ready!

  • With the Redefining Ready initiative, the Hazelwood School District has committed to ensuring every student leaves the district career-ready, college-ready, and life ready through the development of rigorous and innovative academic programs, personalized and career-specific learning experiences, and social and emotional services at every grade level.  Redefining Ready centers around the belief that students are more than a score on a test, students learn in a variety of ways, and students should be able to demonstrate readiness in a variety of ways. 

    After extensive research and collaboration by a committee of 30 teachers, counselors, parents, and administrators during the 2017-2018 school year, the district developed specific indicators to gauge the college, career, and life readiness of students.  The third objective to Goal #1: Improve Student Achievement in the District’s Strategic Plan is to increase the percentage of students graduating high school and succeeding in college, careers, and life readiness. The Curriculum and Instruction Department and Student Services Department have been working with principals, counselors, and teachers to provide learning activities and experiences for all students to meet these indicators by the end of elementary, middle, and high school.
