Fifteen schools have been selected as the first Future Ready Schools in the Beaverton School District. (See list below)
According to the District's Future Ready Vision, "Education should be collaborative, responsive and relevant, prepare all students to adapt to an ever changing future, and inspire and support teachers to innovate instructional practice and professional learning."
Future Ready schools have committed to building-wide change, integrating technology into the teaching and learning process. These schools will be hiring a Library Instructional Technology Teacher (LITT). This newly created position will collaborate with classroom teachers and specialists, helping them integrate research, cutting-edge teaching skills and tools into the learning process to support change and innovation.
In addition to the LITT, Future Ready schools will include a planning team comprising the LITT, teacher leaders and community members. Schools will be reimagining their existing library/media center and drafting a staff development plan for instructional improvement.
Originally slated for ten schools, additional money from the State School Fund will allow the District to increase the number to 15. At the District level, a team of Innovation Strategists and Librarians will support Future Ready schools.
