The Calendar Sub-Committee was tasked to provide input into the creation of the 2016-2017 MLWGS school calendar. The 2016-2017 calendar can be found on the MLWGS website.
Maggie L. Walker is committed to the core belief that the availability and effective use of current
instructional technology is essential to meet the school’s mission of developing gifted students’
ability to contribute, collaborate, and lead.
In the 2015-2016 school year, we assisted Maggie Walker’s Technology Infrastructure Team with the development of the 3-year strategic technology plan.
In the 2016-2017 school year, we are looking for specific ways to continue supporting the 6 Goals of the strategic technology plan:
Goal 1: [data-driven decision-making]: The community of MLWGS will use technology to support a culture that utilizes data and research to inform decision-making.
Goal 2: [communicating vision]: The technology and leadership teams of MLWGS will communicate the vision, goals, and objectives of this technology plan to the broader MLWGS community.
Goal 3: [teacher proficiency]: Teachers will engage students in curricular content and interdisciplinary collaboration through the meaningful and effective use of technology in support of our mission as a school for Government and International Studies.
Goal 4: [student proficiency]: Students will apply technology effectively to demonstrate their understandings of the curriculum and pursue profound and connected learning related to their personal interests.
Goal 5: [infrastructure and resources]: The community of MLWGS will maintain a technical infrastructure and curricular framework that provides multiple modes for delivering instruction, and human and technological resources to support teaching and learning at school and within the wider global community.
Goal 6: MLWGS will provide a safe, secure, and effective educational technology environment for students, staff, and parents.
Our mission is to support the efforts of the faculty and the school to provide opportunities that expand our student’s cultural competency and leadership skills through global engagement.
We are guided by the principles of:

The marketing committee had two primary focuses: how SAC itself is represented on the MLWGS website and how the school as a whole can be better marketed toward prospective students and their parents.
