Individualized Learning: What is Differentiation?

Teachers at Lancaster City Schools have embraced 21st Century Learning in a big way, which means that we recognize not every student learns the same way or at the same speed. By splitting students into groups based on their learning level, each student gets a lesson tailor-made to his or her needs. This helps the struggling students get extra attention, while making sure the accelerated students are being challenged, as well as everyone in between!

Helping Children to Understand Internet Safety and Privacy Logo

Dear Parents,

The Lancaster City School District uses the Common Sense Media curriculum for educating our Kindergarten through Grade 5 students about Internet Safety, Cyber Bullying, and Privacy.  Our students in grades 6-12 have an inclusive curriculum provided by the school counselors and teachers which includes videos and discussions about these topics.  Below are some resources you can use to further explore these topics with your children.

If you have not reviewed the Common Sense Media website it is a great source for parents and students as we all navigate the challenges of the 21st Century. 

Here is a short Video from Common Sense Media which may help you in discussing these topics with your children.

Additionally, the documents linked below can also provide you with useful information.
