Pursuing autonomy and approval for your teacher-powered school
After all of the design decisions your team has made, and all the political navigating you have done, your team is now ready to secure autonomy and seek approval for your teacher-powered school.
Steps for pursuing autonomy and approval include:
- Review sample school proposals and write your own
Review sample proposals and research to prepare a school proposal.
- Learn about securing collective teacher autonomy
Find information on potential areas of autonomy, means of securing autonomy, and sample agreements.
- Connect with teachers in existing teacher-powered schools and get feedback on your proposal
Visit the CTQ Collaboratory School Redesign Lab, browse the National Inventory of Schools with Collective Autonomy, and get proposal feedback or guidance.
