In exchange for their substantial commitment to a new vision for teaching and learning, we offer our partner schools intensive professional development, leadership preparation and planning, and small grants for innovative technologies -- all free of charge.

To the broader community, we conduct extensive research, evaluation, dissemination and outreach.
