Next Education Workforce site visits: Models in action

Date: February 27 - February 28

Time: All day

What do Next Education Workforce models look like in action? Join us to visit schools that are implementing team-based models.

This two-day event opens with an introduction to the Next Education Workforce, and features site visits to either elementary or secondary settings. At each school, you will have the opportunity to tour the learning space and interact with school leaders, educator team members, and students. After the site visits, you will work with the Next Education Workforce team to consider how you can apply what you’ve learned to your own context.

We encourage teams to attend together and to consider using the site visit as a shared experience that helps prepare you to launch your own Next Education Workforce models. Multiple workshop sessions will be provided to attendees to allow a deeper dive into topics related to the implementation of team-based models.


The Next Education Workforce site visit is a great learning opportunity for those trying to see the big picture of a team model. It’s also beneficial in-the-moment planning time with your team. There’s so many “ways” to build this at your site, and being able to see and learn from others helps build ideas to bring home and make your own.
