Schools To Learn From seeks to broaden the definition of what makes an excellent school and share that learning with educators from across the country. Each year, the Schools To Learn From program selects four to five schools that are providing an excellent education for their students. Once selected, these schools will reflect, learn and grow along side participants and facilitate professional development that enables other educators to implement strategies and best practices in their own schools. 

This application is for schools interested in applying to be a host school for the 2019-2020 program year. This year's application process is split between two rounds. The first round is an online application schools will complete in this portal. If invited to the final round, schools will participate in a virtual interview with our selection committee. Schools can review a full overview of the application requirements and process here and our 2019 Dimensions of an Excellent School Framework here

First deadline applications are due March 29, 2019 and second deadline applications are due June 26, 2019. 

Participants interested in applying to attend a STLF visit reach out to our team to be notified when applications open late summer 2019.
