"We need the best for our kids. When you have a learning environment that is conducive, it's better for our teachers, administrators, and most importantly, our students."
The evidence of dramatic change is all around us and it’s happening at exponential speed. As technology changes our physical, digital, and biological worlds, teaching and learning are working to follow suit.
In order to prepare our children for success in the real world, opportunity today requires that education embraces a child’s natural development, meeting them where they are, with an open understanding that every child learns differently, at their own pace, and with inspiration fueled by their own individual interests.
The Virgin Islands Department of Education aspires to build upon its current educational models by recognizing the need to improve its ability to adapt to the rate of technological change by looking for ways to optimize learning, and by finding ways to capture and encourage the creativity that is naturally present in our youth.
The Educational Facility Master Plan will make recommendations as how to build upon the powerful teaching that is happening in U.S. Virgin Islands Public Schools and support educational success at all levels.
The Educational Facility Master Plan will assess existing facilities on Curriculum Space Alignment, Capacity, and Facility Design Potential.
