The Division of Life Skills is committed to ensuring that all students in
Miami-Dade County Public Schools are engaged in creating,
developing, and molding their talents and abilities in a challenging,
safe and nurturing environment.
Through the Florida State mandated Next Generation Sunshine State
Standards (NGSSS), quality Visual and Performing Arts curriculums
are developed and delivered that foster and guarantee enriching
learning opportunities while ensuring access and equity for all students.
Research based instructional strategies, career path exploration,
community service opportunities, technology infused programs
and instruction, and programs that include parental involvement
work hand in hand in helping to create real-world learning
and 21st century global citizens.
The Division of Life Skills’ mission includes the commitment and
collaboration with community partners in creating multicultural projects
that enhance and support the district’s student achievement
priorities and mission as well. The importance of incorporating
all facets of student learning through the Visual and Performing Arts,
while setting a high bar in expectations and student
achievement and preparation, will help to create
the leaders of tomorrow who will be better prepared to meet
new challenges and greet new horizons with success.
