DC+XQ: Notes from the District Design Journey

75-min | In-Person

Following up on what they shared at the Carnegie Summit 2022, XQ’s DC district partners go deeper with real-time lessons from a wide range of innovative high schools. Let’s recap the models they’ve created, the progress they’ve made, and the struggles and triumphs they’ve experienced. Be inspired to possibly lead your own journey, by the reflection of students, teachers, and school leaders about what the design journey means to them and how they’re bringing XQ Design Principles—such as Meaningful Engaged Learning, Youth Voice and Choice, and Community Partnerships—to life for all students within their distinctive models.
