If money were no object, what might you buy? Which charity would you support? Where would you travel?
How would you redesign school?
Many districts considering moving from a traditional education system to personalized, competency-based education wonder how they will pay for it. It can be a fun exercise to think about how we might design the perfect school if money weren’t an object, but because it is, we’ve created a guide to help districts consider how they might spend differently to support the transition to competency-based education. We outline seven approaches, including:
How to align every budgeting decision to your vision
How to work with nearby like-minded districts to share the cost
How to prioritize culture-building
If you want to achieve real, sustainable change in your district, thinking about how you allocate federal, state and local funds is a critical step.
