  • Raptor Visitor Management System

    Posted by Alejandro Herdocia on 9/20/2019

    The Acton Agua Dulce Unified School District is pleased to announce that we will begin using the Raptor Visitor Management System in all of our schools to strengthen our program of campus safety for students and faculty, The Raptor system will go into effect prior to Oct. 1st, 2019.

    The Raptor Visitor Management System scans the ID's of those wishing to gain access to a school. It will log the name of the visitor as well as the date, time and purpose of the visit. It will also compare the name and date of birth with the registered sex offender database, and will alert school staff when there is a match.

  • Carol Dweck Revisits the 'Growth Mindset'

    Posted by Yolanda McCauley on 11/1/2017

    Starry Night by Sean Parker

    Today, we'd like to share something a little different. This is an article that we at Acton-Agua Dulce USD found truly inspiring and we believe you will too! We hope you enjoy the read, and we thank Education Week for producing such fantastic content!

    Carol Dweck Revisits the 'Growth Mindset' - Education Week
    By Carol Dweck

    "For many years, I secretly worked on my research. I say “secretly” because, once upon a time, researchers simply published their research in professional journals—and there it stayed.

    However, my colleagues and I learned things we thought people needed to know. We found that students’ mindsets—how they perceive their abilities—played a key role in their motivation and achievement, and we found that if we changed students’ mindsets, we could boost their achievement. More precisely, students who believed their intelligence could be developed (a growth mindset) outperformed those who believed their intelligence was fixed (a fixed mindset). And when students learned through a structured program that they could “grow their brains” and increase their intellectual abilities, they did better. Finally, we found that having children focus on the process that leads to learning (like hard work or trying new strategies) could foster a growth mindset and its benefits."
