This proposed grant would continue initial work to build a community of practice among the ten school operators in our Deeper Learning Network. It aims to continue to develop a collective sense of purpose, vision, and shared projects among Network members and to continuously improve instructional practices and student results within their schools. In this next phase of the work, the community of practice will focus on developing a set of best practices for deeper learning instruction; disseminating those concepts and practices; considering how to act on larger issues such as leadership, districts/superintendents, and unions; establishing wider partnerships; and expanding communications about deeper learning.

Grants to this Grantee
for a deeper learning community of practice focused on assessment
This proposed grant would foster a community of practice among the eight school operators in our proof points network. It aims to develop a collective sense of purpose, vision, and shared projects among the network members and to continuously improve instructional practices and student results within their schools. Activities will include network-wide forums, study tours designed to share exemplary practices and create collective accountability, and documentation of lessons learned to help promote deeper learning practices outside the proof points network.
for the videoconferencing project
This videoconference grant to Envision Schools will facilitate collaboration among the organizations in the deeper learning proof points network.
for general operating support
We propose this general operating support grant to Envision Schools, one of eight school networks that we consider exemplary models or "proof points" for Deeper Learning. They are active participants in the proof points network and are engaged in a number of projects that align with our deeper learning goals.
