Marshall Springs School, no matter what grade, teachers are striving to help
students meet the same learning targets. We call these targets the
Essential Student Learning Outcomes or ESLOs. We want the result of each learning
endeavor to be aligned with the ESLOs. This helps teachers know that
students are reaching their true potential and are growing in their

Springs Time, students are invited to small group time with teachers that
targets ESLOs of concern.

students are always supported.
