Redefining Ready! at East Noble School Corporation
 
East Noble School Corporation’s goals will be achieved through the lens of preparing students to be college and/or career, and life ready by adapting the AASA Redefining Ready! framework which includes multiple research-based metrics and Indiana Graduation requirements.  (https://www.redefiningready.org/)
 
Upon high school graduation, students will be prepared to successfully pursue their personal goals by being college ready and/or career ready, and life ready.  A standardized test should not define a student, nor does a test score represent a student’s potential, passion, or skill level.  Students need to be engaged in relevant curriculum and opportunities that allow them to develop skills in critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, and communication.  It is also critical that students develop personal attributes such as responsibility, respect, empathy, perseverance and other traits that contribute to life readiness.  
 
Guiding Essential Question for District Decisions:
 
How will an investment of time and/or funding contribute to student success based on our philosophy to ensure all students are college and/or career and life ready?
