 Local School District Named 21st-Century Exemplar

Encinitas Union School District received a nationwide honor this week when the Partnership for 21st Century Learning announced the district would be one of four 2016-17 21st Century Learning Exemplars.

Designed to identify learning environments where students obtain an authentic 21st-century learning experience, the nationwide Exemplar Program, offers the opportunity for innovative practices found locally to be showcased at a national level.

The partnership, also known as P21, recognizes that all learners need educational experiences in school and beyond, from cradle to career, to build knowledge and skills for success in a globally and digitally interconnected world. Representing more than 5 million members of the global workforce and over 2 million U.S. students in K-12, P21 unites business, government, and education leaders from the U.S. and abroad to advance evidence-based education policy and practice and to make innovative teaching and learning a reality for all.
