Place Network

Place Network

The Place Network is a collaborative network of rural K-12 schools that connect learning and communities to increase student engagement, academic outcomes and community impact.  Schools that join the network will have access to sample curriculum, consulting and implementation, research to inform practice and online communities. We believe that a network of schools learning from one another can accelerate student impact.

Our Learning Model

Our model puts both the learner and local place at the center of the experience and is grounded in our place-based framework. Supporting the model are four core elements:

  1. Personalized pathways to build strong capacity in literacy, mathematics, and technology skills
  2. Habits of Success where leadership and self-awareness competencies play an equivalent role to other knowledge and skills competencies – the whole child matters
  3. Project-based learning as the core integrating methodology to support community impact
  4. Mastery as a competency-based assessment system where advancement is based on demonstration of mastery rather than time period
