iNACOL Webinar Explores Redefining Student Success in K-12 Education: Getting Started with “Profile of a Graduate” Conversations in Your Schools and Communities

Washington, D.C. (September 5, 2017) – On Wednesday, September 20, 2017 from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. ET, the International Association for K-12 Online Learning (iNACOL) will be hosting a Special Edition webinar to explore ways in which communities are redefining student success in K-12 education.

Communities across the country are engaging in deep conversations around the purpose of public education and developing 21st century definitions of student success aligned to college and career readiness. What are the processes and steps to engage in meaningful and ongoing conversations with communities, parents and educators to redefine student success?

Join this webinar to learn how education leaders can develop a more meaningful, 21st century definition of success for their school or district through the Profile of a Graduate initiative, and learn ways you can get started in this work. Understand the opportunities under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) for states and localities to create a 21st century definition of student success, and access tools and resources available to support schools and districts in this process. This webinar will share lessons learned from EdLeaders21, a non-profit working directly with schools and districts that have already adopted a new Profile of a Graduate.

iNACOL CEO Susan Patrick said, “It is time to begin a new conversation in our communities asking, ‘What does it take for students to succeed in college, career and life?’ It is critical to engage communities in deep conversations to develop a shared vision and goals for high school graduates, identifying the knowledge and skills students will need to succeed and thrive.”

This webinar is free to attend — participants are invited to register here for final details and login information.
