Next generation schools are creating powerful learning opportunities for students. The Regional Next-Gen School Design blog series seeks to illuminate best practices and share the stories of six regional hubs for innovation through NGLC’s Regional Funds for Breakthrough Schools. The publication highlights each of the six regions individually and shows the unique ways they are approaching the work, including best practices and lessons learned in order to incubate and support next-gen learning. NGLC Breakthrough Schools accelerate student outcomes and achievement through personalized, blended and/or competency-based learning.
