Thursday is the first day of school for students in the Mars Area School District and administrators are launching a new initiative to reach as many as possible each day.
“Learning 180” will allow Superintendent Dr. Wesley Shipley to share a daily message with the Mars Area community through social media as well as on the district’s website.
The title of the initiative refers not only to 180 days in the school year but also a 180 degree look at what learning has become in 21st century schools.
Learning 180 will include communications from the district as well as highlights of innovative instruction methods by district teachers and the opportunity for students to talk about what they are learning.
