Stories of Change from Innovative School Leaders
Throughout the year, MAPLE Innovative School Leaders engage in active problem solving and change management as they work to build personalized learning models that fit the context of their schools and meet the needs of their students. In this session, three MISL design teams will share their stories. From planning and implementing their initial pilots to addressing equity gaps in their schools to problem solving and building buy-in to finally measuring and reporting their success, teams will share their experiences and participants will dig into the process and apply it to their context.
We will begin this session with a quick overview of our vision and beliefs. After setting the stage, each school team will provide a brief overview of their scope of work. Leveraging a station rotation model, participants will select two projects they want to learn more about, choosing between The Springfield Renaissance School in Springfield, B.M.C. Durfee High School in Fall River, Claremont Academy in Worcester, and the MISL Professional Development Network.
Each school team will leverage a discussion protocol to dissect the project and help participants find application to their context. The session will end with reflection and resource sharing.
