About this grant

This grant will support the Annenberg Institute for School Reform at Brown University to assist communities in the implementation of the recommendations from the 2007 "A New Day for Learning" report. This grant will provide technical assistance in selected communities to advance school and community redesign efforts that embody "A New Day for Learning" elements, which include expanding the definition of student success, using research-based knowledge about how students learn best, fostering collaboration across all sectors, integrating various learning approaches and places, and providing new opportunities for leadership and professional development. To accomplish these objectives, the project will support site-based efforts by helping teams set priorities, identify learning and developmental needs, and design common or site-tailored products to address those learning needs.
