Big Rock Feature Stories

Big Rock Feature Stories

When it comes to goals and objectives, "big rocks" are the non-negotiable tasks, the mission-critical objectives, and the leading priorities. 

As we continue to work toward achieving Mapleton's mission, to guarantee all students can achieve their dreams, the following "big rocks" are driving our progress:

  • Curriculum Components/Support Structures
  • Collaborative Structures/Assessments
  • Talent Management

To better understand our "big rocks" and how our focus areas support the unique learning needs of each student in Mapleton, we are introducing a series of "Big Rock" feature stories. Each story highlights a specific "big rock" and the impact it has on academic improvement.
