Is each child at the WLC experiencing substantive learning every day?
How do we know and what is this knowledge based upon?
What will count as evidence each week and month?
Every year, we engage in continuous inquiry and analysis in relation to these and other questions in order to identify representative examples of substantive student learning for celebration, study, dialogue and display in our schools.
