Albemarle County Public Schools have developed Lifelong Learner Competencies (LLC) that ensure students are college, career, and citizenship ready by the time they graduate. These competencies reflect the real-world skills and habits that all people need to be positive contributors to their community.
We measure these competencies through classroom learning walks. In the 2014-15 academic year 85% of high school, 59% of middle school, and 82% of learning walks showed evidence of students working on a LLC. Students were regularly exposed to the rigors and realities of the world post K-12 education.
