Eagle Rock’s Professional Development Center will continue participation in the Deeper Learning College, Career & Civic Readiness Networked Improvement Community in San Diego on Monday, October 19th & Tuesday, October 20, 2015.
The goal of this work is to increase the number of students who (a) achieve deeper learning outcomes, (b) graduate from high school ready for college, career and civic life and (c) go on to be successful in college and life, all while building our collective capacity to engage in improvement work in our organizations.
The project is being being convened by High Tech High’s Graduate School of Education. Eagle Rock joins The Asia Society, Big Picture Learning, ConnectEd, Envision Schools & New Tech in this work.
