In a bold effort toward a holistic redesign of our nation's schools, Baldwin-Whitehall School District has joined the Learning 2025 network of demonstration systems, a collaborative network of districts to help advance student-centered, equity-focused, future-driven education, administered by AASA, The School Superintendents Association. Supporting the work of the Western Pennsylvania Learning 2025 Alliance are Grable Fellows, Dr. Bille Rondinelli and Dr. Bart Rocco.
The more than 60 "demonstration systems" represent a collection of forward-leaning urban, suburban, and rural districts serving as national models to help guide and reposition partner districts efficiently by sharing successful practices and successes, as well as challenges.
"Serving as a demonstration site for Learning 2025 is a great honor for the Baldwin-Whitehall School District, where equity and inclusivity have been long-standing priorities," said Superintendent, Dr. Randal Lutz. "This initiative asks educators and communities some crucial questions about the purpose of education in the 21st Century: what future are we helping our children grow toward, and what skills and knowledge do we need to provide them with to prepare them for the challenges of tomorrow? We look forward to both learning from and sharing with our peer districts as we examine these questions and work to find new solutions that will make the educational experience as vital and empowering as possible for future generations."
