Future of School (FoS) and the Digital Learning Collaborative (DLC), two national organizations leading the way toward effective district transformation, today announced the Resilient Schools Project (RSP). The RSP, a partnership between these two organizations, is an initiative to assist schools and districts with developing an ongoing response to instruction disruptions during the 2020-21 school year.
“A major focus for Future of School is on forecasting―and broadcasting―the evolution of the K-12 system in real time, and the current trends are undeniable. With unprecedented change already underway, schools and districts will need to be flexible and adaptable in order to provide a high-quality, equitable education for all learners,” said Amy Valentine, CEO of Future of School. “As we progress through the Resilient Schools Project alongside our valued partner, the Digital Learning Collaborative, we look forward to supporting districts’ needs by helping them work together to understand how online content, technology platforms, ensuring equity and access, and other key issues will support their schools and students. We aim to both address immediate needs and also set up a foundation for long-term growth and success.”
The RSP will support member schools and districts in their response to disruptions in instruction caused by COVID-19. In addition to immediate instructional and technology needs, the Project will help schools as they address a variety of different challenges and objectives, including teacher training; messaging and communication to families and the media; addressing vulnerable populations, both within the school community and at home; supporting the needs of special populations, including English language learners; and what to do if students choose to learn from home after schools have reopened.…Read More
