Learning Services

The Learning Services team works with teachers and principals on the areas of teaching and learning. We coordinate all curriculum areas including instructional strategies and assessment. With the adoption of Michigan academic standards, we continue to work with math and English Language Arts, and science teachers on curricular alignment, depth of understanding, differentiation and performance-based assessment tasks. The District's Ten Guiding Principles guide what we do on a daily basis. We work with principals and staff to provide rich professional development to support our teachers with their goals and with their classroom innovation.

What Is Restorative Practices?

"All humans are hardwired to connect. Just as we need food, shelter and clothing, human beings also need strong and meaningful relationships to thrive."

Restorative practices is an emerging social science that studies how to strengthen relationships between individuals as well as social connections within communities.  Bloomfield Hills Schools values meaningful relationships, and utilizes these tools to build connections.
