For the past three years, the leadership team at Bolton High School has been working to redefine the school’s graduation requirements. In this session, presenters will share their journey through that redefinition. Presenters will focus on the organizational structures developed to support the process, will emphasize how to effectively use leadership teams to guide institutional changes, and will share how they leveraged collaborative professional learning communities (PLCs) to build professional capacity and support teachers as they implement new graduation requirements and scoring criteria. Presenters will also share information about how they are involving parents and students in the process.

Participants will have an opportunity to engage in a “mock PLC” and will leave the session with PLC activities and suggested agendas focused on mastery-based learning and aimed at improving teacher buy-in and efficacy. They will also leave with a better understanding of how to use school organizational structures to develop a portrait of the graduate and implement new graduation requirements. Attendees are invited to bring copies of a transferable skills assessment or a classroom activity to discuss during the “mock PLC” portion of the session.
