Bioscience High School One of Seventeen Schools, Districts, and “Beyond School” Entities Nationwide Officially Recognized this Year as a P21

Posted by Communications on 2/14/2018

Bioscience High School was one of seventeen schools, districts, and “beyond school” entities nationwide officially recognized this year as a P21 (The Partnership for 21st Century Learning) Exemplar Program.  P21 seeks to identify, document, promote and celebrate examples of 21st century learning initiatives that successfully prepare students for college, career and life.

These entities that earn the P21 Exemplar designation enter an elite professional learning community focused on 21st century learning, and their stories provide educators, policymakers, and communities a variety of models from which to draw from and by which to be inspired.

This year’s exemplars along with other educational stakeholders were invited to a luncheon at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. February 7.  Bioscience principal Dr. Holly Batsell and National Board Certified Spanish teacher W. Andrew White attended.   In the evening, they were also invited to a gathering with their respective Congress representatives at the U.S. Capitol.

Bioscience is looking forward to presenting at P21’s Patterns of Innovation conference, March 27-28 at New Tech High School in Napa, California.
