New Tech Network works closely with leadership teams and classroom educators to make change scalable and sustainable. With more than 25 years of supporting schools and districts in change-making, NTN has the ability to recognize common patterns across systems and what is unique about each school and district community.
New Tech Network (NTN) is a national nonprofit dedicated to systemic change in education. We center K-12 schools as the units of change, working closely with district leaders, school principals, and classroom educators, to co-design an approach to change that is specific to their context. With more than 25 years of change-making, NTN has the ability to recognize common patterns across systems and what is unique about each school and district community.
New Tech Network schools — now over 200 strong — are committed to these key focus areas: college and career ready outcomes, supportive and inclusive culture, meaningful and equitable instruction, and purposeful assessment. The student experience is tied directly to deeper learning outcomes. Students gain skills and use their voices in ways that prepare them for life beyond school. Project-based learning in NTN schools allows students to engage with material in creative, culturally relevant ways, experience it in context, and share their learning with peers.
Our mission is to support change agents at the school and district levels by shifting the way educational change happens. We support individual schools and district learning communities by:
Providing NTN’s structured, responsive, research-based whole school approach to help educators and their stakeholders transform both individual schools and groups of district schools into equitable, supportive, and meaningful learning environments.
Sharing field-leading knowledge, research, and resources to drive awareness and uptake of leading approaches to educational change that center on college and career ready outcomes, supportive and inclusive culture, meaningful and equitable instruction, and purposeful assessment.
- Connecting teachers, administrators, and district leaders as part of a supportive, committed, forward-looking network to learn, share knowledge, and work together to create change and solve entrenched challenges.
We are fostering an organizational community that values diversity in all forms, where all members feel they belong, are cared for, and have the resources and support to thrive. This commitment has us actively examining and changing internal structures and systems that create or perpetuate racial and cultural inequities. By pursuing this we believe we can best serve the learning communities in our Network, and contribute to the national educational landscape.
The New Tech Network School Model, by design, works to dramatically increase access to meaningful, equitable, supportive and inclusive learning environments that prepare each and every student for college and career. At New Tech Network, we support the goals and aspirations of the schools and districts who work with us in their pursuit of their unique identities and commitments to create equitable outcomes for their students. We bring our best selves to this work by developing and growing our own mindsets, behaviors, and actions while centering the educators, students, families, and communities we serve as the core of our work.
