School Redesign

Dissemination Fair 2016

On November 18, 2016, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (Department) hosted its first Dissemination Fair. Over 240 educators participated, sharing best practices across traditional districts, charter schools, innovation schools, and expanded learning time schools. The event was created with help from nearly 50 schools and districts, and was designed to help educators working in areas of school redesign share promising practices with their peers at other schools.

Forty-six presenters from charter schools, expanded learning time schools and innovation schools from across the Commonwealth addressed topics such as problem-based learning, recruiting and retaining teachers, evaluating curriculum, reducing chronic absenteeism, designing teacher and student schedules, fostering social and emotional learning in elementary schools, serving English language learners, and serving students with disabilities. Some of the panels also shared PowerPoint presentations. Fifteen schools/districts created displays of their promising practices. Below is a list of schools and districts that participated in panels or facilitated lunch discussions, along with topics, contact information, and links to artifacts and slides. You will also find a PowerPoint depicting each display with contact information for each school/district.
