Standards Aligned Classroom (SAC)

What can the Standards-Aligned Classroom (SAC) Program do for you and your students?  

This research-based program involves both teachers and students in the standards process through development of clear learning targets and classroom lessons and assessments structured to achieve these targets.  SAC utilizes the Professional Learning Community model that affords teachers the opportunity to learn and share best practices of a standards-led classroom.  A unique aspect of SAC is its coaching component.  Educational consultants provided through the PDA meet with teacher teams to provide support and guidance throughout the school year.  SAC makes a powerful difference in student learning and motivation.  Re-energize your instruction and your students.  Form a SAC Team today.  


Key components of the SAC program consist of:

  • Standards-Aligned Classroom training and ongoing coaching for teacher teams
  • SAC School-wide training and implementation support
  • Establishing clear learning targets for students
  • Keys to building quality classroom assessments
  • Assessment FOR Learning
  • Effective instructional feedback
  • Encouraging student involvement in classroom-level assessment
