Your District’s “Why” for the 21st Century: Start Your Strategic Plan with Portrait of a Graduate                    

Yesterday’s student was prepared by schools to succeed in the industrial age. Today’s student enters a dynamic, technologically connected, and service-oriented workplace with civic responsibility spanning local and global perspectives. To find 21st century success, we are shifting our focus. When a community and district co-create a Portrait of a Graduate—describing what students need to be lifelong learners and contributors—there is potential for real impact. Join Battelle for Kids and Kettering City Schools to explore how the district developed its Portrait, with strong engagement to frame a strong strategic plan.
