Since 2011, the communities of Winooski and Burlington have been engaged in a conversation about how to “remodel” our education system for the needs and demands of 21st century life.
Our goals are clear:
To shape a hopeful and prosperous future for our two communities, and to ensure that all young people in Winooski and Burlington have the knowledge, skills, and habits they need to thrive in a complex, global society.
What is the Partnership for Change?
To support the work of remodeling our education system, the Winooski and Burlington school districts created the Partnership for Change. A research and innovation arm of the two districts, the Partnership serves as a bridge between the districts, an incubator of ideas, a disseminator of best practices, and a convener of community conversations.
A generous grant from the Nellie Mae Education Foundation has enabled us to jump start this work. These resources will allow us to do much more than would otherwise be possible and to do it much more quickly.
The Partnership shares a common vision with Winooski and Burlington Schools:
We will create innovative, collaborative, and equitable learning organizations that inspire all learners to lead their communities to a dynamic and sustainable future.
