Too often, the only schools highlighted for innovative approaches in aligning practice with the science of adolescent learning (SAL) are new, private, or charter. Opportunities and challenges of traditional public high schools differ from those of independent schools, but leaders from both can support each other in the common mission of improving the learning experiences of all students. As the Alliance for Excellent Education (All4Ed) continues to support public school and district leaders in aligning their policy and practice with SAL, this webinar will highlight one of many successful partnerships working to ensure SAL-based approaches are used systemwide.

Learn firsthand how a public school district leader and high school principal formed a mutually beneficial partnership with the Center for Transformative Teaching & Learning (the CTTL), an innovative research and training center based at St. Andrew’s Episcopal School in Potomac, Maryland. Highlighted in a previous All4Ed webinar, the CTTL has served as a model and opportunity to learn for over 250 schools and more than 3,000 teachers and leaders who have attended the CTTL’s presentations, workshops, and programs.

This webinar will explore how traditional public middle and high schools can work with private schools to provide innovative professional development opportunities for teachers and leaders, supporting continuous improvement. All4Ed will highlight partnership experiences of Margaret Lee, supervisor of advanced academics for Frederick County Public Schools, and John Yore, principal of Meade High School in Anne Arundel County Public Schools, with Glenn Whitman, director of the CTTL, to provide professional development in mind, brain, and education science to their teachers and school leaders.

Specifically, panelists will discuss development of their partnerships, opportunities and challenges associated with private-public partnerships, and the impact each partnership has on their students, teachers, and community. Panelists also will answer questions submitted by online viewers.
