Our Work

Empowering School Innovation and Student-Centered Learning

FRS provides educators with research-based tools and resources that facilitate the modernization of schools and districts that support personalized, student-centered learning.  Our work is grounded in the Future Ready Framework and powered by practitioners in the FRS network to ensure relevance.

FRS offers a collection of evidence-based case studies, white papers, and featured articles that offer real-world advice from school district superintendents and innovative leaders who have used or are using FRS tools to transform teaching and learning in their districts. Organized around the Future Ready Framework gears, our work features school districts from a variety of perspectives, experiences, and demographics.

At the heart of Future Ready Schools® (FRS) and the Interactive Planning Dashboard is the Future Ready Framework, a robust structure for digital learning visioning, planning, and implementation focused on student-centered learning.

Micro-Credentials

The FRS Planning with a Purpose microcredentials use the FRS planning tools, including the Interactive Planning Dashboard, to show mastery in developing an implementation plan to deploy personalized learning strategies across a school system.

Guidebooks

The guidebooks support district and school leaders in planning and implementing research-based personalized learning to ensure that all graduates are ready to utilize their talents and pursue their dreams after high school. 

Blog

The blog highlights various success stories from schools and districts that are ensuring equitable access to a personalized, student-centered learning environment and providing robust learning experiences that prepare their students for an increasingly technology-driven workforce and world.
