2024 National School Redesign Showcase

 

A year-long collaboration bringing together students, teachers, schools, and policy makers to design school experiences so they are places people want to be.

National School Redesign Showcase

On May 9th, 13 national school teams of students and teacher presented their findings on how to change the school experience and strengthen student and teacher agency, a sense of belonging, and school connectedness. The teams worked together to conduct research; survey and shadow students, teachers, and staff; and test prototypes to develop their presentations at the National School Redesign Showcase in Washington, DC. 

 

The showcase was well-attended by local and national educators; dignitaries including Jimmy Burnette, Mayor of Suwanee GA, Georgia 6th congressman Rich McCormick, members of President Biden’s Education Advisory Committee; educational policy makers; and media. The showcase was a resounding success enabling each school team to present and interact directly with a large, national audience. The teams also had the opportunity to create networks and relationships with other schools dedicated to improving their schools.

Why

Why Redesign ?

Now more than ever, it’s clear that our current educational system was not designed to provide pathways to life success for ALL of our young people.

School redesign affords educators the opportunity to co-create a space where all want to be – adults and students alike – elevating the insights of teachers, students, and families that allow a manifestation of educational experiences that are designed to be of service for all.
