School Design Resources
Wisconsin Resource Center for Charter Schools has this folder of resources for all schools, around distance learning, rethinking school design, and communicating ideas with stakeholders. Start with this high level guiding document in that folder which is a one-pager outlining all of the folder's resources.
Charter school or not, we are here to support all students. Please reach out if you have ideas about how school will look differently moving forward that you would like to discuss. Additionally, we have guidance on charter schools. If you are thinking about starting or expanding one, now is a great time, since WI has grants for charter schools for the next few years.
2020 Teacher Powered Learning Collaborative
Shared from Teacher-Powered Schools - Education Evolving:
We are excited to start our Learning Collaborative Cohorts this month. Our goal is to support YOU and we are offering this opportunity for FREE this year.
While we originally created this idea before the pandemic, we are acutely aware that we are all teaching, leading, and collaborating in very different environments than a month ago. And, we know that educators' work loads, emotional and mental stress, and scheduling have shifted and in many cases increased under these new circumstances. Our goal is to support you, not add to your plate, and our priority is to design this Learning Collaborative to be a safe and warm place for you to find connection to other like minded educators.
Each cohort of 6-8 educators will meet virtually once or twice a month, with each meeting focusing on one teacher-powered practice. Meet new friends, share your team's successes, brainstorm and get advice on challenges your team is facing.
To join, complete this short form and you will hear from us soon!
