Please visit our individual campus websites for Academic Enrichment to learn how you might participate, coach, or volunteer to support our learners and they showcase their passions, growth, and knowledge.
- Problem Solving
Through the Schoolwide Enrichment Model, Austin Elementary uses mixed-age Enrichment Clusters as a way to engage learners in interest-based experiences. Each 9 weeks, groups of 11-12 learners come together with a common interest and a vague idea of what they are going to do. Through hard work, creative problem solving, and mentoring by real-world professionals, learners develop their idea into a product or service for an authentic audience. Some examples include: sewing chew toys for service animals, designing and making uplifting clothes, hats, and headbands for women in need, creating live video announcements for the campus, and planning an art auction for "Cause for Paws.” (Visit Austin's Enrichment page for more information.)
