Testing the portrait in schools

Let's pilot the portrait, together.

The Portrait Piloting Process is designed for school teams across Nevada to take the  Draft Portrait of a Nevada Learner and begin to explore what it can mean in terms of relationships, experiences, and the environment of school. This initial process aims to engage schools of diverse communities to help us understand the value of the portrait in driving coherent learning experiences for young people. Pilot outcomes will inform a long-term strategy for building a network for ongoing educator collaboration across Nevada.

Become a Portrait Pilot Team (now closed) Each School Team is expected to be between 2-7 educators. After completing the Insight Form and uploading artifacts, accepted teams will be contacted. The initial round of school teams will be determined based on available coaching resources and ensuring a representative selection of schools statewide. Each team will be guided in identifying a relevant innovation priority for your school, then work in a learning and implementation cycle as part of a larger "team of teams."


A brief team case study (no more than three pages) will also be produced, so that learning outcomes can be shared for scaled impact. Up to an additional 20 hours of virtual coaching can be available for your team, scheduled around your needs, to help you move your concept from idea to reality.
