Archaeologically exploring Yunyang dinosaur fossils, being good at understanding one’s own emotions, and practicing calligraphy… the children’s “new homework” after class reflects Yunyang County’s useful exploration of the comprehensive implementation of the “1+X” after-school service model. In April this year, Yunyang County’s “Building a New Ecosystem of After-school Services” was rated as a typical case of implementing “double reductions” by the Ministry of Education.
The implementation of “double reduction” is an important part of the county’s efforts to promote the high-quality and balanced development of compulsory education, and the continuous “questioning” of high-quality and balanced development is also a solid foundation for promoting the high-quality development of basic education.
Standing at the forefront of reform, Yunyang County’s education system fully implements the Party’s education policy, comprehensively promotes the construction of a high-quality education system in accordance with the “1135” work idea, accelerates the high-quality and balanced development of compulsory education, and explores a path to modernize education to strengthen counties in mountainous reservoir areas and enrich the people The new approach is to use the power of education to lay the foundation for a strong county.

Data empowerment, co-construction and sharing. Vigorously promoting the digitalization of education has injected vitality into Yunyang education. The county has established 6 municipal-level smart campus demonstration schools, built 9 urban and rural “special delivery classrooms” and 16 “prestigious school online classrooms”. The Yunyang Education App has been developed to connect the county, School-level applications make education data collectible, manageable and available.

The Yunyang County Education Metropolitan Area Network, Yunyang County Smart Education Cloud Platform, and Cloud Education Management Command Center have been built. The Internet access rate of compulsory education schools has reached 100%. The “cloud-network-end” architecture of Yunyang Education has been initially formed. In 2022, the Yunyang County Smart Classroom Homework Management System was selected by the Ministry of Education as a typical case of using information technology to strengthen homework management.

Group-run schools strengthen resource radiation
