Aligning the Educational System

When the whole education system is aligned to the 21st century vision—the Portrait of a Graduate—equitable, deeper learning outcomes for every student can be realized.

Building on the locally developed Portrait of a Graduate, this systems approach—Portrait of a Graduate, Portrait of an Educator, Portrait of a Leader, and Portrait of a System—provides the cohesive alignment, necessary to bring the vision to life.  This interconnected systems framework illustrates the dependency of each component part of the system for enduring transformation.
