EduvateRI Consultancy Protocol with 360 High School: March 29, 4:00PM-5:30PM

Highlander Institute, 166 Valley Street, Providence RI 02908


We know the power of crowd-sourcing solutions: Different perspectives lead to different solutions and ideas. Even simply stating your problems of practice out loud allows you to see them in new lights.

Consultancy Protocols through EduvateRI are designed to support our local schools and districts engage a diverse community of education stakeholders to ID the best possible solutions to some of their most complex or pressing issues.

This session will dig into a problem of practice surfaced at 360 High School in Providence; we encourage all perspectives in the education ecosystem to join, share your ideas in support of 360 HS, and gain some new ideas of your own. There is no pre-work to participate and, as always with EduvateRI, food will be provided.

RSVP here.

We had a chance to network--as always--and then heard from the locally based Coalition for Access, Affordability, and Success before brainstorming and supporting the Coalition's efforts to increase student college enrollments in Rhode Island.

2017 Events
