The mission of the four Envision Education schools is to transform the lives of students—especially those who will be the first in their family to attend college—by preparing them for success in college and in life through the integration of arts and technology into core subjects. Renewed support would enable Envision Learning Partners, the assessment arm of this work, to expand and deepen its work via the Bay Area Performance Assessment Network, a partnership with the Alameda County Office of Education (also a Hewlett Foundation grantee) that aims to increase educator and school leadership capacity for implementation of arts-integrated performance assessment in a growing number of schools in the region as a key educational strategy.

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.
