K12 Workshop Engaging Teachers as Designers and Innovators

Teacher voice is critical to the success of designing innovative school models. However, teachers are oftentimes not included on the school design team. This session will explore why it’s important to have teachers be part of (re)design teams and how to build a coalition of the willing. LEAP will share best practices from its work with over 100 schools in the Chicago region in creating personalized classrooms and schools, and Distinctive Schools will share lessons learned from its redesign journeys.

Facilitators: Erin Figula - Director of Professional Learning, LEAP Innovations

Scott Frauenheim - CEO, Distinctive Schools
