Rochester School Department - Competency-Based Learning - Rochester Middle School

The Rochester School District has adopted a Competency-Based Learning Model for students in grades K—12. This means that student learning is driven by clear learning targets (competencies) that students are expected to master by the end of each grade-level/course. At regular intervals parents will receive feedback on where their child is on his/her journey to meet each competency.

In addition, parents will receive regular feedback on their child’s Habits of Engaged Learners. These habits are the essential personal and interpersonal qualities such as attitude, work ethic, respect for others, self and materials, readiness for work, cooperation and collaboration and are not only necessary for a successful educational experience, but are essential for lifelong skills.
