There is a place for everyone in the spotlight! We believe each school in our network, new as well as mature, have practices to share and learn. The goals for Spotlight Schools include highlighting those practices and making them easily accessible to our network, each school’s local community, and educators across the nation.

The application period for Spotlight Schools has ended. We will re-open applications in the Fall!

Why Spotlight Schools?

Demonstration sites are evolving into Spotlight Schools. We want to rethink the purpose, structure and process of demonstration sites to create an experience more aligned with current needs. This shift  will be a more inclusive approach supporting continuous growth and networking.

The distinctions between the two are highlighted in our comparison chart for easy differentiation.

Your Place in the Spotlight

We want to highlight your work and invite you to continue the journey of school development through the New Tech Spotlight School program. There is a place for everyone in the spotlight, and we hope to see you there!

I’ve been in education for 14 years now. Why I do what I do was not something I was ever asked until I opened a New Tech school. The emphasis that New Tech places on the why and culture was completely transformative to me.
