School superintendents and education leaders from around the nation visited several Loudoun schools last week as part of a conference that focused on innovation in the classroom.
More than 200 administrators attended the three-day fall meeting of the Digital Promise League of Innovative Schools that was held in Crystal City.
On Oct. 17, groups were offered bus tours to get a closer look at three of Loudoun’s initiatives. The Computer Science Integration program was highlighted at Moorefield Station Middle School, Liberty Elementary School and the Academies of Loudoun. Participants learned about Project-based Learning and Harmony Middle School, Goshen Post Elementary School and the academies. The county’s Real World Learning (Community Connections) program was highlighted at Trailside Middle School, Brambleton Middle School and the academies.
The league has members from 114 school districts in 34 states. It seeks to establish shared priorities and partner with entrepreneurs, researchers, and education leaders to develop innovative learning and leadership practices that improve outcomes for students and helps prepare them to learn for life. Loudoun County Publish Schools has been a member of the league since 2011.
