Science Leadership Initiative

School Partners Program

Griffin MSI's Science Leadership School Partners Program provides a mechanism for whole-school change in science teaching and learning. This innovative program is grounded in current research in science education and designed to support K-8 schools as they do the work of science education reform in the following ways:

  • Support schools on a path toward improvement.
  • Promote a culture of shared leadership between teachers, administrators and Griffin MSI.
  • Recognize those that succeed as models for other schools.

A School Partner, which includes a Teacher Leader, administrator and cross-disciplinary team representing multiple grade levels, is able to utilize Griffin MSI supports to elevate science programming at the whole-school level. Creating a culture for science in a school requires the whole organization. Realizing a vision for science education requires a partnership.

The Science Leadership Initiative is made possible in part by The Davee Foundation and the Polk Bros. Foundation.
