New Hyde Park-Garden City Park Union Free School District signed a pledge to be a Future Ready District.
The pledge is offered through Future Ready Schools, a project of the Alliance for Excellent Education that provides educators with research-based tools and resources to promote a modern learning environment.
Future Ready Schools describes its mission as helping innovative educators ensure that each student graduates from high school with the agency, passion, and skills to be a productive, successful, and responsible citizen.
By taking the pledge, district leadership teams will be offered the chance to attend professional learning events, participate in webinars, learn about additional activities and events, and get free access to the interactive planning dashboard.
“Offering innovative programs to our students, and supporting our staff in their development of those skills, is crucial to providing a well-balanced education. I am excited to take this pledge and be part of this network,” said New Hyde Park-Garden City Park schools Superintendent Jennifer Morrison.
As stated on futureready.org, the Future Ready Schools network emphasizes vision, culture, leadership, strong pedagogy, goal setting and the critical role of people in personalized learning.
The district joins more than 3,400 schools nationwide in taking the pledge.
