Six Colorado Schools Redesign the Future of Student Learning

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 2, 2015

Denver, CO – Three Colorado school districts are on the cutting edge of redesigning the classroom of the future — better preparing students for success in the classroom, college and the workforce.

Adams County School District 50, Colorado Springs School District 11, and the Thompson School District are putting their school designs in motion starting fall 2015. Each district, with different student and community needs, chose teams from two schools to design personalized learning models to align with Colorado’s new graduation guidelines.

In partnership with The Colorado Education Initiative (CEI) and Colorado Department ofEducation, the districts were selected last June to develop school redesigns as part of a national effort launched by Next Generation Learning Challenges (NGLC).  The effort supports learning that is personalized, competency based and often technology enabled.  This Colorado coalition is one of only six regions in the nation participating in NGLC Regional Funds for Breakthrough Schools,  to help school districts create successful models that can be replicated in other schools.
