On March 26, 2014, the Chicago Board of Education approved a name change for
Goudy (please see
Board Report). Our new name is: "WILLIAM
C. GOUDY TECHNOLOGY ACADEMY".
The Goudy school name modification is adopted to more accurately reflect the
school’s current educational technology focus and to better articulate the school’s
rigor and high standards. Goudy’s vision is to use technology to transform traditional
methods of teaching and learning to ensure students develop technological skills
to succeed in today's global world. Upon leaving Goudy, students are uniquely
positioned on the forefront of technology, which will prepare them for success
in college and/or career opportunities.
We, the stakeholders of Goudy School, are committed
to fostering a culture that focuses on respect, responsibility, and a sense of
belonging in a safe and supportive environment for all students. Within our rigorous
curriculum, we are implementing differentiated and data-driven instruction that
contributes to the success of our students. As a magnet cluster, we are striving
to equip all students with technological capabilities that will promote academic
growth and development. We are committed to ensuring that all children including
English Language Learners, students with disabilities, and the academically gifted,
are afforded the opportunities to reach their full potential in preparation to
meet the challenges of the 21st century.
Goudy Technology Magnet Cluster, in collaboration
with students, parents, and community members, embraces a culturally diverse,
technologically advanced, and respectful learning environment. We envision technology
and collaboration to be integrated throughout our curriculum and in every classroom
to provide all students with the 21st century skills that will empower them to
become successful leaders and productive citizens in our society.
