Many states are pushing beyond traditional definitions of a successful graduate, such as GPA or college admittance, to create a ‘portrait of a graduate’ that identifies the skills students should possess upon high school graduation. 

This shift redefines success to include attributes that will help students become ethical and global citizens. Importantly, this approach isn’t limited to secondary education – schools are increasingly aligning on this concept starting as early as elementary school, highlighting its significance throughout a student’s educational journey.

Register for this roundtable webinar to hear from three school leaders who have experience creating a portrait of a graduate. They will discuss:

  • The process of identifying the essential skills and competencies that make up a portrait.
  • Alignment of a portrait with their school’s vision and mission.
  • Professional development and the need to advocate for student-centered pedagogies.
  • Community communication and celebration.

Whether you’re just starting to create your school district’s portrait of a graduate or already have adopted one, we invite you to join the conversation. Don’t forget to submit a question for the panel when registering.
