Shaffer School is dedicated to providing a 21st century learning experience for all students. During the 2012-2013 school year we implemented a flexible schedule in order to better meet the individual needs of all Shaffer students. This adjustment has proven to be quite successful for our students and we are continuing on with this implementation in the 2013-2014 school year. Not only did we provide more technological opportunities to promote 21st century skills, we employed many 21st century teaching tenchniques into the classroom to better meet the needs of student learners in a rapidly and constantly changing world. At Shaffer School we focus on the 4 C's of 21st century education. Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking,and Creativity. We promote these skills continually throughout the daily lessons and provide experiences to better prepare the students for success in their future. The Shaffer School Board of Trustees, administration, staff, families, and the community are dedicated to working together to provide the best educational experience for all Shaffer students. I am excited as we enter into the new school year. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. We are proud of how Shaffer School is moving ahead to better prepare the students for THEIR future. Thank you.
