About the School Inventory & Networks

We have been researching and tracking schools with collective teacher autonomy for some time in our national teacher-powered school inventory. While many of these schools are active in the teacher-powered community, not all are; the inventory is more of a research project.

Starting in 2018, we are organizing teacher-powered networks. Namely:

  • Teacher-Powered Ambassadors around the country formed four Regional Teacher-Powered Networks (in Los Angeles, Massachusetts, Minnesota, and Wisconsin). Their vision was that teachers in each region could connect to offer each other support and encouragement, exchange best practices, and share advice relevant to their unique regional contexts.
  • Additionally, there is also a National Teacher-Powered Network. This national network connects schools and teachers that may not be located in an area with a regional network—and also helps to connect schools and teachers who are part of regional networks to their colleagues across the nation.

Throughout 2018, we will be formalizing what it means for schools and teachers to be part of these networks—in terms of the benefits, responsibilities, and types of membership.
