Life Ready Model

The mission of the Elizabethtown Area School District is as follows:

Every Student Graduates Ready to Live, Learn, and Thrive in a Global Community

We accomplish this mission by coupling three core elements: 1) robust learning environments at all grade levels, 2) a healthy culture of belonging in all school buildings; and 3) an accountability system that provides feedback on how well we are doing as an educational institution.

In this section of the website, we take a closer look at our robust learning environments.

The District's Life Ready Model is the foundation for our academic programming. Our Life Ready Model provides students - kindergarten through twelfth grade - with a comprehensive curriculum and continuum of personalized learning experiences based on their unique interests, skills, and future ambitions. We tailor our programs, services, supports, and connections to help all students achieve their dreams and aspirations despite their diverse needs and ambitions.

We tailor our programs, services, supports, and connections to help all students achieve their dreams and aspirations despite their diverse needs and ambitions.

As part of our Life Ready Model, we aim to unleash our students' ability to think critically, collaborate, and communicate effectively in this ever-changing world. The Life Ready Model is not a curriculum. It is a mindset and cutting-edge approach to education that aligns our academic offerings with personalized and career-specific learning opportunities. The District predicates the Life Ready Model on providing students with instruction, learning opportunities, and experiences to support their future goals at all grade levels.

Three critical components that support the Life Ready Model framework are as follows:

  1. Accountability
  2. Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment
  3. Platforms for Success
