St. Vrain Valley shines as model of innovative curriculum done right

Patty Quinones doesn’t want to know what kids want to be when they grow up, but instead what problems they want to solve in their lifetimes.

“We want kids to be very, very prepared for their futures,” said Quinones, the St. Vrain Valley School District’s assistant superintendent of innovation.

She spoke Thursday at Discovery Education’s fall forum, hosted at St. Vrain Valley’s new Innovation Center. St. Vrain first started working with Discovery Education in 2015 on its digital curriculum.
