Greenfield Framework for the Future

Greenfield Union's mission is to promote ALL students with high levels of academic and personal achievement through a collaborative system of support, guided by passionate, dedicated staff in a safe, nurturing, and culturally responsive environment that fully prepares students for future college and career success. We are excited to share the Greenfield Framework for the Future:

The Framework for the Future provides a north star that includes the learner outcomes, learning experiences and enabling conditions to inform decision-making and prioritization. Ultimately, it will help us to achieve our vision to be a national leader in education ensuring high levels of learning and success for ALL students.

See below for more information on the design process that was leveraged to create our Framework.

Our Framework for the Future was designed in 3 parts:

Part 1 is defining whole-learner outcomes. This is called the "Learner Portrait."

The Learner Portrait is 

  • A visual representation of the essential skills and habits of mind students should have when they graduate to be successful.

  • Aspirational, memorable, and easily communicated to students, parents, faculty, and staff. Consider limiting to 4-8 outcomes.

  • Expanded outcomes for learners, what success looks like; capturing evidence of the whole child through competencies that are transferable, interdisciplinary, and relevant to the learner in the modern world. 

  • A commitment to (re)design school in a way that ensures every student can succeed in fulfilling the profile’s vision for learners.

Part 2 is defining the learning experiences that will support learners in achieving the desired outcomes. This is called a "Learning Model."

The Learning Model

  • Establishes the learning experiences to achieve your whole-child outcomes.

  • Provides a catalyst to align systems, processes, and structures necessary to support students in developing and demonstrating the outcomes.

  • Ultimately, it’s the framework for pedagogical change and provides the fence posts for what teaching and learning should look like. 

Part 3 is to select high leverage strategies or Big Moves that the district will enact over the next 3-5 years to create the enabling conditions for innovation. These priority areas

  • Help us measure success more broadly than 1 standardized test score 

  • Are based on community input and context

  • Have multiple dimensions of metrics and evidence that help inform our progress

  • Help the community focus on what matters most
