Why Personalize Learning?

The Verona Area School District Board of Education believes that EVERY student MUST be successful!

Why do we believe this?

Our world, including Verona, Fitchburg, Madison and all the surrounding areas is changing dramatically and rapidly. The needs of all of the students and families we serve contribute to that change and compel us as an organization to change to meet those needs. Unfortunately, some of the students in our school district are not succeeding. We believe this has an enormous negative impact on students, educators, parents, policymakers, employers, employees, residents, homeowners, and citizens. As a community, we must take responsibility for EVERY student. 


How will we know every student is successful?

  1. Every student in VASD has a personalized learning plan that provides a path to discovery and achievement and that plan is reviewed and changed at least annually based on the student’s needs.

  2. Every student’s parent, guardian or advocate participates directly in the design, implementation, and outcomes of that student’s personalized learning plans.

  3. Every student meets or exceeds the goals of his or her personalized learning plan every school year.

  4. Every VAHS student graduates.

  5. Every VAHS graduate achieves their choice of college and career path, as detailed in their personalized learning plan.

What is the timeline?

By the 2018-2019 School Year, the District will fully implement personalized learning plans for every student, grades K-12. 

 To make this happen, we need to make a shift to a learner-centered approach across the district, and that approach is all about personalized learning.
