Experiential Site Visits (ESV) provide a unique opportunity to see pathways in action. They are usually two-day events, co-hosted with a partner district, that allow interested educators to observe and learn how districts develop and sustain systems of pathways, as well as what those pathways look like at the site level.

Future ESV’s coming in the fall of 2023!

North Kansas City Experiential Site Visit – March 28 – 30, 2023

Hosted by North Kansas City School District and ConnectED in North Kansas City, Missouri on March 28-30, 2023.

“[The North Kansas City] community recognized that it is no longer a competitive advantage to know more content than the person seated next to you, the advantage comes with having the necessary skills to do something with the information you have. While they are still early in this amazing transition, the leaders and community members in North Kansas City answered every possible question we had on our experiential visit there with structures and systems that are truly student-centered, and that give their teachers and staff the time and resources necessary to support the students in their pathways and schools. Bravo North Kansas City!” — Matt Baldwin, Director-Secondary Education, Santa Clara Unified School District

North Kansas City School District launched their work four years ago with a readiness assessment and planning phase and launched four pathways for 9th graders in all four of their comprehensive high schools last year. Now in it’s second year of implementation serving 9th and 10th graders, North Kansas City Schools shared what they have learned visiting others like Porterville, Long Beach, and San Diego and how they have accelerated their work. Participants were able to see the work, ask questions, and determine how to take what they had learned and apply it to their school or district.

Feedback from the event:

“Thank you for you time and knowledge! Especially sharing with us your experiences.”
“I loved the student ambassadors! They did a wonderful job”
“I liked the brainstorming sessions with others the best. The facilities were all very nice. And the 2nd school was amazing.”
