Dr. Jason Pearson
The Launch of Empower
Empower is now part of the school day in all District 303 elementary schools. Although the launch of the innovative program was delayed due to COVID, students and teachers alike are excited to create, problem-solve, collaborate and learn during the time allotted for all students in kindergarten through 5th grades. Dr. Pearson talks with Sarah Cann, Assistant Director of Instruction, and Empower teachers Tanya Hernandez and Lauren Schaaf about the origin of Empower, skills students are building, and how parents can talk to their children about what is happening in the classroom.
