School Retool

School Retool is a professional development fellowship that helps school leaders redesign school culture using small, scrappy experiments called “hacks.” Hacks may start small, but they're built on research-based practices that lead to Deeper Learning, and can create the kind of big change we aspire to—namely, preparing students for life in the real world.

After 3.5 months of hacking and learning, you'll go home with a shiny, new process for change, a handful of like-minded principals on speed dial, and the start of a retooled school.
