RIASP, RIDE, and the Rhode Island Foundation recognize that there are wonderful and innovative practices happening in our Rhode Island schools that are contributing to the academic achievement of students. We have joined forces to create Schools In Action, a program designed to showcase the important work of some of our RI schools and allow others to learn about it. Thank you to the schools who will host site visits this year. Sign ups to attend a site visit are on a first come, first serve basis. You will be notified via email when you have been confirmed for a spot. We hope you will join us for a site visit and consider being a host school.

RIASP- “SCHOOLS IN ACTION”*

Ongoing: Schools in Action Site Visits/ Sign up with this link

Peer observations and collaboration are powerful tools for fostering professional growth and development. Principals, for a variety of reasons, do not have enough opportunities to observe other schools “in action” and to collaborate regarding mutual goals. The purpose of the development of such sites is to provide this opportunity to our education leaders across the state. As we learn from one another, we expect an expansion of school practices that are have a positive impact on student achievement.
