Communicating School Redesign Course 2016-17


In the 2016-17 academic year, three to five Vermont schools will be selected to participate in a credit bearing course to guide them in their efforts to introduce both personalized learning and proficiency-based learning to all stakeholder groups in their community. Each team will conduct research to shape its own local communications campaign. They will reach out to students, teachers, parents, and the community by leading small and large discussion forums, employing traditional media (press releases, opinion editorials, etc.), social media and web development, and producing original videos. Course instructors will provide training and ongoing coaching. Participants will also enjoy the mentorship of course alumni from previous years, becoming part of a growing cadre of school teams that are capable agents for school change.
