Teacher-Powered Schools

Our Mission:

Teacher-powered is our language for educator teams that have autonomy and authority to make final decisions at their school site in areas impacting student success. As a teacher-powered community we strive to rise above traditional education dichotomies and tensions and remain focused on creating student-centered learning communities designed and led by professional educators at the school site. We are a respectful, inclusive, and passionate group dedicated to improving the education system and serving all students in our local communities.
