Join us in Salem on May 11th to hear students, educators, and community partners share their experience reimagining what is possible for middle school learning.
This forum is an opportunity to:
Visit the Salem Middle School Learning Pilot
Explore the power of community-embedded learning
Build community with like-minded practitioners and forward thinking leaders who share a commitment to cultivating equitable, learner-centered environments
Imagine what is possible for all middle school students with authentic and purposeful routines, activities, and processes
Share your contexts and insights to collectively work to advance learner-centered education
Salem Public Schools has a legacy of openness to innovation and student-driven practice. Emerging from the pandemic, civic and school leaders in Salem realized the urgency of increasing engagement and relevance for adolescent learners. A vision for a learner-centered and community-embedded experience took shape. The Middle School Learning Pilot launched in September 2022, with the support of Salem’s Civic leaders, School Committee, District leadership, Teachers’ Union, and Families.
While we certainly don’t have all the answers, we believe the insights gained from this year of learning are highly relevant to the work of building more equitable, learner-centered environments for communities across the North Shore and beyond.
