Becoming future Ready

In 2014, Dr. Marc Bertrando, Superintendent of Schools for the Garnet Valley School District, signed the Future Ready District Pledge demonstrating his commitment to work collaboratively with key district stakeholders to set a vision for teaching and learning in this digital age, to empower educators through personalized professional development, and to mentor other district leaders in their own transition in becoming Future Ready educators. Since then, our District has moved at an accelerated pace to become Future Ready and personalize learning for our students and staff.
