  • District-Wide Professional Learning Day Focuses on Academic English Skills

    Is this the world's tallest group of elementary school students? Nope! While students enjoyed an early release yesterday afternoon, staff from all six Cambrian SD schools were hitting the books. Teachers had the opportunity to learn from peer experts about the Guided Language Acquisiton by Design (GLAD) method, which is designed to help students absorb academic English skills -- which will serve them through K-12, college and beyond-- as they learn science, social studies, math and other subjects.
