New Vision for the Rhode Island High School Experience
Rhode Island’s Board of Education has recently adopted our state’s most innovative and collaborative strategic plan yet. In the spirit of adopting the values and tenets of this strategic plan, RIDE has begun to envision how our secondary school regulations and high school graduation requirements can be even more supportive of RI’s vision for successful graduates of our schools.
RIDE is engaging the Rhode Island community in conversations regarding how we can best utilize the high school years to prepare all students for success in college and career. Initial meetings are currently underway with small focus groups. The narrated presentation below provides a framework for reflecting on the present and future state of the Rhode Island high school student experience.
This video will walk you through the structure of the first round of focus group meetings.
