The Division of Life Skills believes that every child has the right
to a complete education and that the arts are among the critical core subject
areas. Our mission is to assure that all students have the opportunity to
develop their artistic, creative, and physical tunities, research-based
instructional strategies, technology-infused instruction, career path
exploration, community service opportunities, real-world learning,
enhanced parental involvement, and programs which include partnerships,
talents, skills, and abilities in a challenging, safe, and nurturing environment.
To that end, the division provides direction and assistance to enable
schools to nurture high student achievement and foster academic
excellence through quality curriculum development, innovative educational
choices, enriched learning opporcollaborations, and multicultural
projects that support the district's priorities. Our belief is that a
multicultural learning environment that is reflective of Miami-Dade
County and promotes high expectations is essential to preparing the entire
community of learners to be successful in meeting the challenges of tomorrow.
