20% Time

This site was created to learn more about 20% Time (a.k.a Genius Hour)


Students should have the opportunity to discover, explore, and create something based on their interests. When students are interested, deep learning takes place.


At appropriate times determined by teachers, students will be able to use school resources, such as Chromebooks, Internet access, G Suite for Education Apps, other educational programs to research and create digital or other “offline” products in a standards-aligned project that has relevance.


This is for all students and teachers interested in exploring a unique learning opportunity for his/her students.
