Getting ALL of our students to graduate is not enough. We must aim for EACH, which is very different than ALL. EACH is different because of the meaning of personalization, individualization, and customization. EACH implies that we must take what is unique about every single student and use it to create a pathway to success.

Using what we know about EACH student will allow us to design opportunities and create experiences that give EACH student the necessary knowledge, skills, and dispositions to make it happen.
