Our Instructional Vision
The purpose of the EFC instructional principles are to define, at a high level, what we believe must be true for all students to meet our mission.
Over time, these principles will help to align our instructional frameworks and approach and informs our decisions related to program development and instructional support.
What core beliefs or principles will help us make decisions and drive the design of our academic model? Who are we as a network? Who aren’t we?
Four principles define our instructional vision: mastery, agency, acceleration and engagement. These instructional principles are interconnected. For example, student agency requires active engagement, and true engagement cannot be obtained without rigorous instruction, and accelerated student outcomes require the habits and mindsets of self-direction. The beliefs and definition below provide some clarity on what these priorities are in theory and practice.
