Competency education is expanding across the country as a means to ensure all students are mastering the skills and knowledge to be successful in college, career and civic life. This webinar draws on lessons learned and insights from leaders and policymakers in New England and is intended for district leadership and policymakers seeking to introduce competency-based education within their states.

CompetencyWorks recently released a report titled Reaching the Tipping Point: Insights on Advancing Competency Education in New England, which explores the core concepts of competency education, provides insights in policy and practice across six New England states, and analyzes the impact of competency education on quality, equity, scaling and sustainability.

Topics include how our understanding of competency education is deepening; the implications of policy features on the levels of progress within these states; and how to design state strategies that support and engage districts in co-design.
