Lindsay Leads/Advancement Work


In June 2016, the Chan/Zuckerberg Initiative announced a new partnership with Lindsay Unified School District to scale and support transformative models of teaching, learning, and system re-design in public education. Lindsay Leads is designed to prepare the people, system, and structures internally to intentionally and strategically support, empower and motivate other educational entities to transform their systems to personalized models.

With support of a grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York and the Bush Foundation of Minnesota, we are building capacity to scale and support personalized educational models. Teams consisting of learners, learning facilitators, classified staff, and administrators are available for assessment, consultation, training, professional development, resource development and coaching.
