Redefining Ready

Every student learns differently, and the Green Bay Area Public School District (GBAPS) goal is to ensure that we measure college, career and community readiness in a way that reflects those differences. GBAPS has joined a national initiative called Redefining Ready! Launched by the AASA (The School Superintendents Association) to introduce research-based metrics to more appropriately assess student readiness.
