Profile of Graduate Icon Task Force for Defining Wellesley’s Profile of a Graduate

As we strive to prepare WPS students for success in college, career, and life, the District has been focused on integrating 21st century learning principles into our curriculum.  In partnership with EdLeader21, a national network of school and district leaders focused on integrating the 4Cs into education, WPS is preparing to embark on an effort to develop our Profile of a Graduate (POG), i.e., what our community wants a WPS graduate to know and be able to do.  It is essential that our conversation about the POG includes multiple community stakeholders. We are therefore seeking interested community members to join a POG Task Force – in particular, students, graduates, parents, educators, as well as leaders from local businesses and higher ed institutions. The application deadline has been extended to Wednesday, January 24, 2018.  Please click below to register and for additional details on the Task Force.
