About Teacher-Powered 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 helps us track and learn from teacher-powered schools across the country. With the networks we hope to actively engage you all, the true leaders in this work.

Starting in 2018, we began 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 Teacher-Powered Networks to their colleagues across the nation. (As a member of a Regional Teacher-Powered Network, you are automatically part of this national network.)
