District leaders investigate new designs for personalized learning wherein time is both adaptable and flexible. The district is identifying both synchronous and asynchronous learning opportunities by accessing existing research and reaching out to other districts that are using time differently to promote personalization. The district deepens their understanding of the infrastructure necessary to encourage personalized learning through new pedagogies, schedules, and learning environments. District leaders have collaboratively developed a vision for personalized learning that leverages new pedagogies, schedules, and learning environments. They use both research and existing practice to review new possibilities for their district and have identified which of those would work locally. A plan for utilizing new pedagogies, schedules, and learning environments to promote access and participation with personalized learning opportunities is constructed. This plan leverages resources that can be made available to students both synchronously and asynchronously, and accounts for policies, necessary budgets, and licensing agreements that will empower education professionals and students to use time differently to engage students. Necessary training for teachers is identified and any gaps that exist in student readiness are addressed. Those gaps include issues related to equitable access for all students. District leaders have staged education professionals and students for personalized learning opportunities through the use of new pedagogies, schedules, and learning environments. Policies, funding, and metrics to measure effectiveness are in place, and the infrastructure is ready to provide synchronous and asynchronous learning opportunities to all students.
