2019 High School Redesign Accelerator

Why Accelerate?

We know your type. You are a dreamer, a strategizer, a planner.

You know more needs to get done to move the needle on equity, relationships, and engagement. And you know you can’t go it alone.

So now what? The Accelerator helps teams focus on a key lever for transformation.

At the Accelerator, your team will focus and energize on a specific strategy to go deep in building momentum.

Is your school ready to drive change in:

    • Supporting equitable social-emotional learning of students?

    • Supporting equitable rigor of the educational program you provide students?

You will leave this Accelerator energized, focused, and ready to act!

IDEAL: Teams of 4: $2000

This is the ideal team size for the Accelerator. We encourage you to bring four team members from your school to work together during the conference. You are also getting the best ticket price at just $500 per person.

Teams of 3: $1800

If you can’t bring four team members, three is the next best option! You still get a discounted rate per ticket and will have the benefit of a true team experience at the conference.

Teams of 2: $1400

Teams of two can still make change happen. This option is discounted over the individual rate and you’ll have a partner to work with on designing and implementing your change ideas.

Individuals: $750

The Accelerator is designed to be a team experience; however, we know that’s not always possible. We will accommodate a limited number of individuals and will help curate your experience so you still get the most of the conference as possible.

We think that the most innovative space to inspire and engage in creative thinking about high school redesign is — a high school! The Accelerator itself will take place at recently renovated Northfield High School on the Paul Sandoval Campus.
