Personalized Learning White Paper

RI Personalized Learning Initiative White Paper & Resource Bank

In 2016, Rhode Island launched a Statewide Personalized Learning Initiative--with a goal of supporting, accelerating, and expanding student-centered, relevant, and rigorous K-12 learning in the state.

This white paper is our first attempt to come together with school, community, nonprofit, and state partners to flesh out our vision of what we mean--and don't mean--by personalized learning in Rhode Island.

Forty stakeholders helped create this vision. But we knew it wasn't perfect...and that we would learn more to hone our thinking as we started and continued the work.

So we made a promise to ourselves: This would be a living document--one that we would revisit each September and revise as needed.

We encourage you to read the paper as well as peruse the related resources featured here--including the case studies from Rhode Island schools.
