Portrait of a Graduate

Are your students well prepared to contribute and compete in this global, innovative economy?

School systems across the country have engaged their communities in developing a Portrait of a Graduate, a collective vision that articulates the community’s aspirations for all students.

The Portrait of a Graduate is the first step in framing a new vision for your school system. Locally developed, but globally positioned, the Portrait serves as a North Star for system transformation.

Once you create your Portrait, taking this vision to scale requires a thorough analysis of the entire school system to make 21st century learning a reality for every student. Battelle for Kids helps school system leaders with:
