We are Bremerton Model

  • We are Bremerton ModelEngage. Empower. Excel.

     
    The We are Bremerton Model is our recipe for success. Our district worked with national experts, including Dr. Clayton Cook, over the past several years to develop the model based on research on effective practices, implementation science, and student needs. The recipe consists of five key ingredients. We know when we provide a safe, supportive, consistent, and socially-just environment our staff and students thrive. Relationships are at the heart of everything we do and we know students and staff thrive when they feel a strong sense of belonging to their school. Learning is the cornerstone of what we do and we know students develop and grow when they are engaged in rigorous, relevant, and responsive learning. When students are empowered we know they thrive and are self-determined, developing a sense of purpose and hope for the future. Students thrive when schools provide support to meet their needs to provide access to early, timely evidence-based interventions. Equity, trauma-invested, and family partnerships are the three guiding principles that represent the lens and the mindset through which we as educators approach what we do in service of promoting outcomes for our students. Rather than stand on their own separate area of work, these guiding principles are infused throughout our efforts to bring to life each of the ingredients in our school buildings so students receive as high-quality experiences and support as possible to promote their success inside and outside of school.
     
    Whether learning remotely or face-to-face, the Bremerton School District’s Continuous Learning System is used to engage and empower our students to excel. This system allows us to effectively deliver each of the ingredients of our We are Bremerton Model to provide high-quality instruction through both asynchronous and synchronous learning experiences. Our synchronous time together maximizes connection, community, and collaboration with peers. Our asynchronous time provides autonomy for students to engage in deep learning that is relevant and meaningful at their own time, pace and place.
