Spotlights: Envision Education

Spotlights: Envision Education
April 7, 2017 Stuart Foundation

A charter management organization with a long track record in preparing students for college and career, Envision believes in partnering with districts and spreading what works in its schools to traditional district schools.  Envision will support the Los Angeles Unified School District to use portfolio assessment systems in 11 high schools, with a larger goal of building LAUSD’s capacity to spread the practice throughout the district. These portfolios offer teachers more precise diagnostic tools to gauge student accomplishments and needs, as they look beyond standardized test scores to more well-rounded measures of college and career readiness. We invest in this work for its potential to spread more holistic ways of gauging student performance, and for the promising partnership forged between a charter and a traditional public system.
