Reimagining High School: The Role for State Leadership

To better equip graduates for what lies ahead, high schools across the country are redesigning the learning experience. On July 27, expert panelists will paint a picture of these innovative schools: what they do differently and the principles that animate them. They will then turn to what state leaders can do to ensure that all students have access to high schools where they gain real-world skills, rich and rigorous learning, agency, and meaningful pathways to graduation. Drawing on themes from NASBE’s latest State Education Standard, High Schools That Matter, this webinar will explore what it takes to redesign a high school and how state policy can catalyze—or hinder—transformation at scale.

Speakers featured in this webinar:

  • Scott Bess, Indiana state board member and founder of Purdue Polytechnic High School
  • Jim McNiece: Kansas state board member and former high school principal
  • Kristen Ferris, partner and lead on school design, Education Resource Strategies
  • Monica Martinez, college success program director, Haas Jr. Fund
  • Steve Bowen, Hoover Institution ( as moderator)
