School Retool’s approach is through a three-month professional development fellowship for principals that helps them intentionally design their school culture using small experiments, which can then lead to the kind of bigger change the leader aspires to see within his or her school to best prepare students for life beyond the classroom.
As a School Retool cohort member, you will engage in:- 4 full-day School Retool workshops at a central location - Thursday, September 20, 2018 - Thursday, October 11, 2018 - Thursday, November 1, 2018 - Thursday, November 29, 2018- 1 full-day to shadow a student in your school between Thursday, September 20, 2018 and Thursday, October 11, 2018- Approximately 1-4 hours per week of other School Retool activities, hacks, and coaching between workshops
School Retool KC is available to school leaders in school that serve at least 40% students who qualify for free- or reduced-price lunch in the following counties: Jackson, Clay, Cass, Platte in Missouri and Johnson, Wyandotte in Kansas. Priority will be given to building principals; assistant principals or instructional coaches may also apply for consideration. The Kauffman Foundation is sponsoring this inaugural cohort, so there will be no cost to schools or districts.
