21st Century Skills and the Challenge 21 ProgramTop of Page
The Eureka Union School district has developed a dynamic vision for the future of our district and community. The visioning process helped us to refocus on the importance of preparing our students to be successful in the 21st century. This means that in addition to teaching content standards, we also need to help our students to become lifelong learners who are skilled at collaboration, communication, and critical thinking. These beliefs are also consistent with the new Common Core Standards for college and career readiness.
In order to help us better prepare our students for the future, we have developed the Challenge 21 program. The Challenge 21 curriculum is focused on the California's Adopted Common Core Standards as well as an established set of 21st century skills.
