YEAR-LONG PROFESSIONAL LEARNING SERIESRedesign Institute: Future Forward Schools 
OBJECTIVEThe Future Forward Redesign Leadership Institute is a year-long professional learning series that integrates action team planning with a focus on developing future-ready schools and rigorous learning for all the series, educational leaders will examine criteria necessary for quality systems of curriculum, instruction, and assessment in the 21st century:

Curriculum: Programmatic Coherence for Leverage and Endurance Standards

Instruction: Applied Learning for Innovation

Assessment: Personalized Learning in a Non-Invasive System of Assessment

With the support of business leaders and expert consultants, district leadership teams will engage in key actions to redesign systems for high-leverage impact on meeting global and workforce readiness goals. To build coherency and continuity of service, district leadership teams will make recommendations for implementing research-based design features across all school sites. As teams construct their plan for implementation, they will identify areas for flexibility as well as specific non-negotiables within the future-forward plan.
District and School Leadership teams will:

identify priority standards for leverage and endurance that produce high levels of cognitive demand for college and career readiness.

create a curriculum guide which defines programmatic coherence for students in grades 3-12 that aligns to global and workforce readiness.

establish an effective instructional framework for accelerating achievement outcomes which allow students to demonstrate personal and civic responsibility, global competence, and workplace skill development.

develop a non-invasive assessment system that promotes personalized learning within a mastery-based learning model.
