At the Verona Area School District, we acknowledge that many of the educational systems we have put in place through the years have contributed to a lack of success for marginalized students in our district, particularly students of color. Our district is dedicated to addressing and ensuring equity in our student’s educational experience. We believe that changing these systems will improve the success of all students in our district. One key effort in this area is our movement towards personalized learning to better engage and motivate students.
