Learning Leadership Network

A National Network to Catalyze Secondary School Transformation

The purpose of the Learning Leadership Network (LLN) is to support secondary school transformation in the United States. The LLN is a three-year initiative to support, showcase, and study systems that are creating engaging, equitable, and effective learning experiences for their secondary students.

Nested within the Foundation’s Future of Learning portfolio, the LLN is currently supporting the leadership teams of 10 districts to advance their secondary school transformation priorities, build improvement capacity, and cultivate awareness, contribute evidence, and create support for systemic improvements in secondary education. Going forward, the LLN will provide examples and evidence of systems that educate students through diverse modalities and settings, improve their progress through high school, and strengthen their connection to high-quality post-secondary pathways. The network will provide a proof of concept of how secondary instructional systems can be organized to strengthen student success and identify key policy enablers for implementing these approaches at a persuasive scale.
