Application Process:

All schools and districts are eligible to apply! After you submit your application below, you will receive automatic notification via email of your submission.

You will be notified by email of the status of your application the week of April 21, 2014. We apologize that our evaluation process has taken longer than expected. Schools that have been selected for an evaluative visit will be contacted, and additional materials or information may be requested in advance of that visit.

Evaluative visits will be conducted before the end of the school year. Scheduling will be individually determined based on P21 and school representative availability.

Following the evaluative visits, the evaluation team will make a determination regarding 21st Century Learning Exemplar status . You will be notified of your school's status by July 15, 2014 and may be asked to participate in a follow-up phone interview for additional background information to help us build the case study for the Patterns of Innovation website.  Please contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
