For every student in the region to succeed we need an education system that works for all students. This requires a more personal, more relevant approach to education.
The guiding goal for our Education initiative is to make our region the national leader in providing individualized education that meets the needs and ambitions of all students. To that end, we make investments in a handful of efforts to make education more relevant for all students in terms of:
How they learn.
Adopt new techniques and technologies for instruction that help students learn in a manner and at a pace that meets their individual needs.
Who they are.
Create learning environments that welcome and support students from all cultures and backgrounds.
What they aspire to do.
Help students imagine a career and provide tailored supports to get them where they want to go.
We also offer Ecosystem grants which provide general operating support to organizations that help create an environment for our efforts to be successful.
Sign up for our online information session on Monday, March 27 at 10:00 AM Central, to learn about our work to make education more relevant for all students. Our staff will share details about our work and highlight upcoming opportunities for educators who want to reimagine the purpose and structure of school.
