School Retool

Developed in partnership with Stanford’s K-12 Lab and the design firm IDEO, School Retool provides the mindsets, tools, and peer support needed to redesign school culture.

Be part of a growing number of Retool Fellows across Oregon and the country, who use “hacks”—small experiments built on research based practices—to ignite deeper learning.

“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."

The School Retool Fellowship includes four full days of workshops, Shadow a Student Day, ongoing coaching, and “hacks” in between workshops.
