Visionary Leadership

From Vision to Action, We Can Help

At Battelle for Kids, we support visionary leaders to transform education and drive student success.

This begins with establishing the community’s vision for every student. By creating a North Star for system transformation—the Portrait of a Graduate—the community collectively identifies the skills, dispositions, and competencies students need in this rapidly changing and increasingly complex world.

From there, we partner with school districts to determine the strategies necessary to bring their vision to life. We help with this important work in various ways:

Creating the Vision

Portrait of a Graduate

The first step in transforming your school system is establishing a shared vision of future-ready, deeper learning for every student – your Portrait of a Graduate.

Locally developed and globally positioned, a school system’s Portrait of a Graduate is developed with the community to identify the skills, dispositions, and competencies students need for success in this rapidly changing, complex world.

Strategic Planning

Battelle for Kids is proud to have supported districts from across the country in developing and designing their strategic plans. For enduring transformation, all aspects of the system – including the strategic plan – must be aligned and anchored in the district’s vision, the Portrait of a Graduate. We have helped education leaders engage their communities and identify the big moves that will bring their vision to life.

Student Voice

Now – more than ever – hope, engagement, and belonging in future-ready, deeper learning matters! Listening to student voice is essential to empower them to take ownership of their learning and become active agents in the educational process. And when educators have the tools to engage their students and respond, they can make a powerful impact.
