The journey towards a brighter, more equitable future for every learner is taking center stage at Getting Smart’s first regional New Pathways Convening “Paving the Way for Pathways: Connecting Local Schools and Businesses” on October 19th and 20th at the Greater Tacoma Convention Center in Tacoma, WA. In collaboration with American Student Assistance (ASA), Tacoma Public Schools, and Puget Sound Educational Services District (PSESD), this convening will create space and connection to design a way for Washington schools to cultivate engaged citizens, blending high wage employment and economic mobility with a purpose-driven life.
In an era quickly being defined by technological advances and hyperconnectivity, the traditional educational landscape is transforming. Creating a learning ecosystem where K-12, higher ed, industry, and community collaborate to provide students with the tools they need to thrive is essential. How might we design a road map for Washington schools, where every learner, regardless of zip code, is on a pathway to productive citizenship? It starts with curating, connecting and catalyzing the development of New Pathways and all of us have a part to play.
The New Pathways Convening can guide us toward a future where education is not confined to a classroom but is a dynamic and continuous journey. It calls upon the entire community to shape an educational landscape, with equity at the center. All students need to be given the access and opportunity to explore their full potential.
Why Washington State? By showcasing the inspiring work already underway in Washington State, the convening seeks to inspire attendees and catalyze a movement that amplifies the impact of innovative educational practices. By bringing attention to local success stories and national exemplars, the conference aims to inspire education leaders, policymakers, community programs and stakeholders across the region to embrace and implement New Pathways.
As the convening unfolds, attendees will have the opportunity to engage with thought-provoking panels, tour exemplar pathway programs, participate in facilitated design sessions and network with stakeholders. By curating, connecting, and catalyzing the development of New Pathways, this convening is setting the stage for a brighter tomorrow. Let’s come together, learn from each other, and pave the way for a purpose-driven learning ecosystem that empowers every student to thrive!
