Meeting 50 Summary


In May 2023, members of the California Collaborative on District Reform convened in Santa Ana, California, to continue a yearlong focus on systemic coherence in the face of continuing pressures and priorities that threaten to fragment and distract improvement efforts. Participants examined efforts to develop a graduate profile as an anchor for focusing district-level strategies to strengthen student learning. The convening was also an opportunity for Collaborative members and guests to step back and examine the evolving world for which schools need to prepare young people to thrive. The meeting enabled participants to explore ideas about the future of education and how school systems can best adapt to and prepare for changes in the learning environment and the broader world in which we live.
