Henry County Schools district leadership has a strong commitment to creating personalized learning opportunities for students. Our vision for personalized learning is captured in the phrase “Ensuring Success for Each Student.” The components of the vision have been visually organized within the image below. Our goal for Henry County graduates is “all students college, career, and life ready.” The foundation for the vision rests on two core beliefs: that students should have agency in their learning; and that schools, supported by the district, should have autonomy in determining how each of the tenets is implemented.
Student agency is the foundation of Henry County's personalized learning commitment. Student agency refers to the responsibility students have to make important decisions in their own learning experiences. We believe that schools should foster student ownership of learning, not accept passive participation in the learning experience. Students with high agency are aware of their strengths, needs, wants, and goals, are clear on learning expectations and how to meet them and are resourceful learners who seek information and build skills they need to be successful in college, career, and life.
The student experience will include five essential elements, called tenets, represented by the pillars below:
