Overview
EdLeader21 is a nationwide professional learning community for school district leaders focused on implementing a variant of deeper learning (core academic content, plus critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity). This grant would enable it to develop a performance assessment system to improve teacher, school, and district practices; to provide deeper learning-aligned capacity-building opportunities for EdLeader members that are focused on Common Core implementation; and to support evidence-based district analysis and transformation through its STEP21 self-assessment rubric, online tool, and peer review process. This grant is aligned with the Program’s objective to support field building by expanding the group of school leaders committed to deeper learning, and to support the "assessment literacy" of using testing data to inform deeper learning instructional practice reform.
