Projects


Transcend partners with district, charter, and independent school operators throughout their design journeys

We work with schools and systems in two ways:

  1. With communities looking to ignite or advance their local school (re)design efforts. We offer…

    • A structured but creative design process, supported by powerful professional learning, tools for innovation, and targeted coaching

    • Resources that help schools to access knowledge on future trends, learning science, and conditions for innovation

    • Access to a network of innovative models to learn and borrow from, other schools on the journey, and a rich network of supporters

  2. With schools and entities who have an innovative model that could benefit other communities. We offer…

    • Capacity and expertise to test, refine, and strengthen the model itself, and to capture the most essential aspects of the model that can be shared

    • Insights on what adopting communities want and need, and support in developing strategies and vehicles for spreading the model

    • Access to a broad network of adopting communities and other relevant supporters

 

Examples of partnerships we undertake:

Ignite—Let’s start from the beginning...

Whether you are just getting started or are looking for extra capacity to help you activate your own innovations, we provide coaching, resource sharing, project management, inspiration visits, and networking so that your community can conceive, build, launch, iterate, and ultimately codify a breakthrough school model.

Advance—Let’s turbo-charge progress...

If you have already started down the path of school model innovation, we add capacity to help you undertake cycles of learning and iteration, develop strategies to innovate, build pilot projects, identify barriers, and ultimately codify and share. Because we’re connected to a vast network of schools that have undergone their own transformations, we have the most up-to-date data on models that work—and because ours is an iterative approach, your school becomes part of this community of innovative educational models as well.

Capture—Let’s bottle the magic...

How will your school’s innovation model be replicated? With school operators who have successfully developed highly promising models, we develop processes to evaluate your model’s strengths and improvables, prepare key elements for sharing, and identify ways to spread your efforts—so that together, we can amplify the impact.

Spread—Let’s share success...

If you want to be an early adopter of an already developed, highly promising model, we partner to customize and help you adapt the model to your community.
