Virtual Forum for Cross State High School
Redesign Schools: Seniors’ Postsecondary Pathways

Recorded Live, April 16, 2020
Everyone Graduates Center, Johns Hopkins University

Ensuring this year’s seniors stay on track and graduate high school with a postsecondary plan in place is the topic occupying many educator and families’ minds, across our network. We have also heard interest in establishing a means for us to collectively explore options by engaging in open and honest dialogues with members of the cross-state high school redesign school community. We look forward to the opportunity to learn from each other, to engage with you in dialogue, and to co-create possibilities.

Focused Discussion:
• How can we ensure this year’s seniors stay on-track and graduate?
• Exploring possible supports for seniors to have solid postsecondary experiences for Fall 2020.

Broader Discussion:
• If it would be of value, what topics would you want to explore as a cross-state group?
• In what form or venue and on what timeline would it be most helpful to explore those topics?
