Opporturnity: School Retool Principal Fellowship

Monday, April 24, 2017

The Construct Foundation is inviting principals and assistant principals to join the second Oregon cohort of its professional development fellowship.

Are you interested in participating in the next Oregon cohort of School Retool? If so, please fill out this brief survey.

What is the School Retool Principal Fellowship?

Stanford University's d.school K12 Lab and the design firm IDEO partnered to develop School Retool, a three-month professional development fellowship based on research by the Hewlett Foundation.  During four full-day, in-person workshops, principals and school leaders participate in a collaborative series of workshops and “hack” cycles, including opportunities to shadow a student, design and test out their “hacks” back at their school and engage in coaching sessions. These workshops foster opportunities for Deeper Learning a set of six research-supported competencies, that directly benefit students by putting them at the center of the work.

Oregon recently completed its first cohort of School Retool with principals and assistant principals from 11 school districts: Amity, Centennial, Dallas, Dayton, David Douglas, Gervais, Newberg, Portland, Sheridan, Willamina, and Yamhill County.

We would like to gauge your interest in participating in the second Oregon cohort of School Retool next winter. We look for clusters of principals from the same region as a way for school leaders to support each other during and after the workshop.

Please click here to take a brief survey to gauge interest and availability. We will send out a formal application in May 2017 base on the results of this survey. Thank you!
