Portrait of a Graduate: Critical Thinkers

Dear Blue Ace Families,
Friday will mark one month since we returned to school, how time flies! I’m so proud of the work done by our students and faculty so far this school year.
As I wrote on the first of September, we are refocusing efforts to highlight Our Portrait of a Graduate – a composite of our Values combined with what mindsets, skills and dispositions we want our students to possess after their tenure within Granville Exempted Village School District.
The next competency I want to explore further is how we want Granville graduate to be Critical Thinkers. We define this as:
  • A Blue Ace collects, assesses, and analyzes information to make sound judgments and decisions.
  • A Blue Ace refines and evaluates ideas in order to innovate and maximize creative efforts.
  • A Blue Ace reflects on the learning process, feedback, and solutions.
We will highlight Blue Aces being Critical Thinkers on our social media channels this week and beyond. Please watch for the next competency highlight in a couple of weeks. We are Learning for Life!
Your partner in education,
Jeff Brown
Superintendent, Granville Schools
