DEVELOPING THE WHOLE CHILD
ZIA LEARNING'S APPROACH
Zia understands that the new focus on digital tools and curriculum in the classroom calls upon students to become more autonomous learners. Next-Gen education models have brought about both new opportunities and new challenges. It has become increasingly clear that teachers need tools and strategies to understand and address the whole child. At the same time, students have been given more freedom and autonomy in personalized and digital classrooms. However, they may lack the critical skills to thrive in this model.
Zia Learning has worked with our office for over five years to provide supports for our teachers, staff, and students. Their Healthy Habits for Learning program was implemented district-wide to provide students health, wellness, social and emotional supports while learning remotely. Zia's remarkable programs are a critical part of providing whole-child supports to our students.
