Project 24

issue_proj24

Project 24 is an urgent call to action for systemic planning around the effective use of technology and digital learning to achieve the goal of college and career readiness for all students. It is a one-stop shop of comprehensive district-level planning tools, expert advice, creative ideas, and tangible suggestions from experienced education experts and nonprofit education membership organizations.

There is no specific time commitment on behalf of district leaders who need to make incredibly important decisions about how to address college- and career-ready standards for all students; utilize online assessments to gauge comprehension and learning; push for greater system and classroom innovation; deal with shrinking budgets; and contend with demands of states’ waivers from key provisions of the No Child Left Behind Act. The Alliance’s Project 24 is aimed at informing these decisions.

The Project 24 framework helps districts address seven key concepts: academic supports; budget and resources; curriculum and instruction; data and assessments; professional learning; technology and infrastructure; and use of time.

Three easy steps to participating include (1) signing up; (2) assembling a team; and (3) taking the free self-assessment on which a confidential, customized report will be generated. Upon review of a district’s confidential report, it is up to district leaders to make the most of the resources that are available.

Share a fact:

As district leaders seek strategic innovation, Project 24 offers them the urgent call, collegial support, and a roadmap for ensuring that they are using technology effectively to meet their learning goals.
