2-Year In Person Cohort for School and District Teams Ready to Re-Energize Your Vision for Learning

The LAUNCH Pathway is a two-year professional learning opportunity designed for school and district teams ready to shift to learner-centered classroom practices.

This cohort model includes in-person convenings four times per year, virtual learning opportunities, and collaborative engagements. Focus areas for the LAUNCH Pathway include:

  • Key implementation strategies for the classroom

  • Competency development

  • Assessment approaches

  • Leadership tactics

  • Implementation practices

  • Overcoming policy barriers

  • Strategic planning

What to Expect

LAUNCH Cohort Commitments and Supports

Develop a design team

While your school's design team might look different than others, we highly recommend your team includes the following roles: 

  • Principal
  • Instructional Coach (or someone who serves this role)
  • Three early adopter teachers
  • A district representative


Participate in regular check-ins for ongoing support

As part of the cohort, your school team will participate in regular check-ins with a regional Personalized Learning Specialist for personalized support and coaching. These Personalized Learning Specialists are based out of Ohio Education Service Centers.

Learn and share alongside other schools and educators working to grow personalized, student-centered learning.

For the two-year cohort commitment, your design team will participate in four in-person meetings per year (eight total over two years). Choose a cohort meeting location in the North, West or East-Central region of the state.

You will also have access to a national and state network of personalized learning practitioners.
