Ascend Wins Personalized Learning Grant!

Congratulations to ASCEND for being awarded a Planning Grant to support Personalized Learning!  ASCEND was one of 10 Oakland schools that a team of local and national personalized and blended learning experts deemed to be a potential “breakthrough school”.  The ASCEND team is thoughtfully considering how to develop learner profiles and personalized pathways to strengthen their expeditionary learning model and create more dynamic student-centered learning environments.  It’s an exciting challenge!

Oakland had been named by the Next Generation Learning Challenge as one of six regions to develop breakthrough schools and the Rogers Family Foundation was tapped to lead that work.  We look forward to partnering with these organizations to develop new school models and deepen our impact on student learning!  For additional information on the grant, please read here.
