PAST ATTENDEE EXPERIENCES

“I can honestly say the School Design Academy is an experience for both leaders and teachers. My team and I left the Academy with the fundamentals and core framework which begins the process of turning around a low-performing school. The collegial relationships gained during the week make all the difference in school transformation.”

“The School Design Academy is critical to creating a common vision. We were challenged to reflect on traditional practices that inhibit innovative instructional designs and start to seek authentic student-centered experiences. After the Academy, our team was motivated and equipped to the begin the work of project-based teaching and learning.​”
