For more than 18 years, Battelle for Kids has convened district-level collaboratives of forward-thinking school systems as models for connecting and innovating to improve educational outcomes for all learners. This approach to accelerating change through a coalition of the willing has proven to be both impactful and enduring. Today, we are building on this legacy, organizing networks of districts taking collective action to realize the power and promise of 21st century learning for every student.



In October 2017, Battelle for Kids welcomed EdLeader21 as one of its national networks dedicated to making 21st century learning a reality for every student.
