In this session, presenters from Windsor Locks, Connecticut, will share where their district started, where they are now, and where they plan to be in their progression to a fully mastery-based system. Presenters will support participants as they assess where they are in the process of becoming a mastery-based learning community with the ultimate goal of students leading their learning through the design process.

Using small-group consultation protocols and personalized consultation with the facilitators, participants will identify goals, potential obstacles, and next steps in transitioning from a traditional learning system to a mastery/competency based learning system that empowers students to design their learning outcomes and align them with standards.

Participants will create an action plan that is personalized to their need as a school or district in transitioning to a mastery-based, student-centered, and student-empowering learning community.
