Empowering student learning in Kenowa Hills, Michigan

Kenowa Hills Public Schools in Grand Rapids, Michigan, are ensuring their students are prepared for the future with a new initiative focused on competency-based learning. Laura Hilger, Senior Teaching and Learning Coach at KnowledgeWorks, explains the goal of work as a way to ensure that students become “successful innovators ready for college or career.”

In a recent post for Personal Mastery: Journey to Excellence, a Kenowa Hills newsletter, Laura explains why competency-based education is the right way for the school district to reach their goal. “Competency-based education … is taking shape to create real change that can guarantee each graduate has the skills necessary to lead their life, and impact their communities,” said Laura.

Kenowa Hills is embarking on a mission to “be the most innovative, student-centered district in the state.” When this happens, learning will be student-centered and students will be owners of their own learning.
