Developed in partnership between Stanford’s K12 Lab and the design firm IDEO. Research and funding on Deeper Learning competencies provided by the Hewlett Foundation.

At School Retool you will acquire the mindsets, tools, and peer support needed to redesign your school culture! Become part of a growing number of Retool Fellows, across Oregon and the county, who use "hacks" - small experiments built on research based practices- to catalyze "Deeper Learning" outcomes for all of your students.

“This was the most well-timed, streamlined, helpful PD I've had as an administrator. I am a VP in my 5th year of administration, with a principalship on the horizon. My confidence to lead a building and fellow educators grew exponentially through this Fellowship! I have a simple framework, Big Ideas, and levers to help me take simple, small actions and make things happen! I've gotten WAY more out of this experience than I hoped for."

-- Central OR Cohort 2017 Participant

The School Retool Fellowship includes: 4 full days, Shadow a Student Day, Coaching and “Hacks” in between workshops.
