  • One Word That Will Change Your Life

    The G.O.A.L. Program will follow the footsteps of authors Dan Britton, Jimmy Page and Jon Gordon of the best selling book, "One Word." The G.O.A.L. staff will help students find simplicity and success in their school world by developing a discipline for school life.
    One Word explains how to simplify your life by focusing on just ONE WORD for the entire year. The simplicity of choosing one word makes it a catalyst for life-change. Clutter and complexity lead to procrastination and paralysis, while simplicity and focus lead to success and clarity. Finding and living by your one word will impact the six dimensions of your life—mental, physical, emotional, relational, spiritual, and financial. Calling all parents, students and staff to choose your "ONE WORD."

    School District 308 uses ALEKS as their mathematics intervention program.  ALEKS is the acronym for Assessment and LEarning in Knowledge Spaces is a Web-based, artificially intelligent assessment and learning system. ALEKS uses adaptive questioning to quickly and accurately determine exactly what a student knows and doesn't know in Mathematics. ALEKS then instructs the student on the topics they are most ready to learn. As a student works through a course, ALEKS periodically reassesses the student to ensure that topics learned are also retained. ALEKS courses are very complete in their topic coverage and ALEKS avoids multiple-choice questions. A student who shows a high level of mastery of an ALEKS course will be successful in the actual course she is taking.

    ALEKS also provides the advantages of one-on-one instruction, 24/7, from virtually any Web-based computer for a fraction of the cost of a human tutor.

    Currently, Geometry Essentials students at The G.O.A.L. Program use ALEKS once weekly as an in-class intervention.  Students are encouraged to log in weekly from home and work on their individualized learning targets.
