|What is Mastery?|
Opportunity for mastery means that we need to give all students opportunities to meet and exceed the course standards and objectives. The expectation is that students LEARN the material and demonstrate mastery but we know that it takes students some students longer to master concepts and skills than others. AACPS worked with a variety of stakeholders, including parents, teachers, students, and administrators to revise our current district policy and regulations concerning students opportunity for mastery or their ability to “redo” assessments and assignments.
