Collaborative Work Stations Arrive!
Thanks to an Educational Grant funded by The Ed Rachal Foundation through the Aledo Education Foundation, Daniel Ninth Grade Campus has introduced Collaborative Student Workspaces into the halls of our campus.  Students can utilize these spaces to collaborate with peers on projects/assignments, to form study groups, for peer tutoring, or for individual work/study/reading.   These spaces support our vision of more collaborative/project-based learning in an effort to prepare students for college and beyond.    We are excited to provide a space where students can collaborate, problem-solve, study and become more independent learners.
