ProfileofARamseyGraduate_Definition Sheet.pdf

In January 2018 over 1,000 survey responses identified the top competencies that our school community believes are important for a Ramsey student to possess upon their graduation from the Ramsey School District. Together these competencies form the Profile of a Ramsey Graduate and serve to inform curriculum writing, teaching practices, and assessment across the district. Together, this work will make up the long-term district goal of "Developing the Ramsey Graduate" as the Profile of a Ramsey Graduate will serve as the "North Star" that guides all of our district work from PreK through Grade 12. This site will be expanded throughout the 2018-2019 school year as we roll out the Profile of a Ramsey Graduate. Please check back often.
