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.

for the Deeper Learning Leadership Forum  
Envision Education hosts the Deeper Learning Leadership Forum, in addition to working with students, schools, and districts to improve student outcomes through the use of its portfolio defense approach. The Leadership Forum is a cohort-based leadership experience that aims to develop, strengthen, and support a group of educational leaders to work at the intersection of equity and design thinking. The grant enables Envision to support education leaders who are knowledgeable of deeper learning and equity issues and positioned to implement necessary changes inside their systems.
