first step in becoming a School of the 21st Century
is to gain familiarity with the model and its components
strong commitment to the principles is an essential
element for the program’s success.
Before beginning implementation and entering into a
working relationship with the Yale Zigler Center, the
school must indicate that the program has the support
of both the superintendent and the principal.
a school demonstrates this commitment, Yale then invites
a team of key stakeholders from the school to an orientation
meeting with Zigler Center staff.
learning more about the program, the steps involved
in implementation, and the experiences of other schools
that have implemented 21C, the school team makes a decision
about whether or not to implement the School of the
21st Century program in their school.
that want to implement the program enter into an agreement
with the Yale Bush Center regarding training and consultation
