We want students and educators to thrive in an evolving world

Virginia has been working for several years to modernize its public education system to prepare high school graduates for a changing world and workforce. This can be seen through the development of the Profile of a Virginia Graduate and the Virginia Department of Education’s Virginia is for Learners campaign. To further this effort, Virginia state and local education leaders developed several companion profiles that provide a vision for how the classroom, educators and education leaders can best support students and prepare them for the future. These companion profiles provide a rich understanding of how the classroom experience and educator workforce influence student success. The Commonwealth Learning Partnership puts these profiles into practice to build and support a more vibrant, prepared and supported educator workforce. You can learn more by reading our thought pieces below.

Educators, We Want To Hear From You!

We depend on input from educators across the Commonwealth to gauge the needs of the learning community. Your observations, recommendations, and questions drive our work and ensure we are helping to meet the needs of educators. A lot has changed over the past few years, and our learning environments have dramatically evolved. We welcome any reflections from educators and education leaders on what they are observing or what they would like to see change. Would you like to share your thoughts, recommendations, or requests for how learning can improve during this time and in the future?
