  • Vision 2015

    North Carolina New Schools is pleased to announce its Vision 2015 plan, the result of a year-long strategic planning process by the Board of Directors, Board of Advisors, staff,  and more than 150 leaders in business, government and education to sustain the organization's role as a trusted partner in the complex and challenging work of school change. Vision 2015 builds upon earlier plans in 2006 and 2009 that also engaged experts, policy makers and educators across North Carolina and the country.

    With Vision 2015, NC New Schools will build upon its talent development strategies, tools for school design and development, and national, state and local partnerships to address three overarching goals:

    • Advance STEM education: Accelerate rigor and skills development among graduates by partnering with committed schools/districts and by providing explicit connections to higher education and to business and industry.
    • Advance workforce development: Support the creation of a seamless education and training system, including linking students and teachers to workplace learning, by working with local, state and national partners.
    • Advance innovation: Scale innovation that works across school districts and regions with local, state and national partners; push the boundaries of change through research and development.
