New Tech Network is founded on the core belief that public schools can create, operate and sustain innovation. Professional development and coaching is the key to successful New Tech schools. Teachers and administrators participate in comprehensive professional development and receive on-site and virtual coaching during the first four years of implementation.
Strong leadership is essential for the long-term success of all schools and this is no less true for New Tech Network schools. NTN works to address this in two ways. First, NTN strives to build the capacity of teacher leaders, principals,and district leaders to create and navigate highly collaborative school cultures that embrace inquiry-based approaches to teaching and learning. Second, NTN helps leaders to create systems and structures that transform schools into learning organizations with a high capacity for continuous learning and improvement.
