York County School Division Strategic Plan

Goal 2: Engagement & Rigor


Objective: Transformative Learning


  • By FY17, each teacher will develop and implement at least two transformative learning projects annually. Each student will experience at least one uniform transformative learning project annually, in which they conduct research and use oral and written communication skills to make productive contributions to the world while learning the content of the curriculum. As appropriate, performance tasks should also utilize technology that is designed to amplify and improve the quality of student work.

  • FY15 Milestones:

    Fiscal Year Target
    FY15 By FY15, school board office staff, building administrators, and teacher leaders will begin to identify, using specific transformative project based learning criteria, exemplary projects to create a bank of shared projects.
      By FY15, two grade levels in each elementary school will implement at least one uniform transformative learning project.
      By FY15, one grade level or two content areas in each middle school and high school will implement at least one uniform transformative learning project.
    • In FY14, 77 teachers participated in PBL training and implemented at least two transformative learning projects during the course of the year.

    • In the spring of 2014, all 19 YCSD schools hosted Student Exhibitions.

Through these exhibitions, students demonstrated their understanding of the content and skills of the curriculum with confidence.
