AES School Governance Board Request for Flexibility Proposal
Alpharetta Elementary School Governance Board has written a proposal for professional development to strengthen our math curriculum. The proposal is asking for a two-day release time for teachers to learn and explore ways to best implement a project-based learning approach to our math curriculum. The time will include planning projects and real-world experiences to support and enrich our math curriculum.
