Overview
Over the past three years, the Program provided project support to the Deeper Learning Network (DLN), a "network of networks" consisting of ten school reform models totaling some 500 public schools across the country. The DLN has helped make the case for the viability of deeper learning, offering examples of it in action and providing locations for site visits by policymakers. We will provide "tie off" grants to the DLN in order to refocus our funding on research that addresses policy reform needs, development of new assessments of the harder-to-measure deeper learning competencies, and capacity building for educators to understand and make use of student achievement evidence.

Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support  
EL Education, a national school support network, has developed a K-12 curriculum based on open educational resources and aligned with deeper learning that has seen significant uptake through the EngageNY platform. The network will address the resulting need to increase its capacity to deliver services in support of the curriculum, generate additional high-quality instructional materials, expand its online professional learning strategies, and scale its reach and impact at the district level. Generating and implementing exemplar high-quality curriculum further promotes smart demand and capacity for deeper learning instruction.
