Distinctive Offerings

LEAP Innovations is partnering with Distinctive Schools to launch a new initiative aimed at promoting personalized learning and problem-solving among teachers and leaders.

This partnership will present a series of workshops and collaborative opportunities for educators to utilize the LEAP Learning Framework to personalize learning and address the challenges of practice.

The Leap Learning Framework outlines 3 grounding principles:
1) Every learner can succeed with support that's customized to the child's interests and needs
2) Every learner brings strengths and talents to the classroom
3) Learner agency is essential
