If you talk to the leaders behind accomplished, innovative schools about how they formed the vision of a new school with their community and one form of professional development is bound to come up: visiting other innovative schools. Through a school visit, you can ask questions of school staff, meet students, and experience the school building as a learning environment.
Visits are a powerful approach to building your vision of a different school. Today, we’re proud to announce the Fall 2017 list of STEM school tour dates.
