Joe Schumacher, CEO of Goddard Systems, Inc. (GSI), Craig Bach, VP of Education at GSI, and representatives from The Goddard Schools located in Ladera Ranch, CA (Mike Smithers); Mooresville, NC (Barbra Bryan); Concord Township, OH (Tina Turk) and Redmond, WA (Jeff and Shauna Barison) attended a Partnership for 21st Century Learning (P21) event titled “Closing the Skills Gap.” This event was held on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC on February 28.

The meeting consisted of opening remarks made by the co-chairs of a bipartisan Congressional 21st Century Skills Caucus, a panel discussion with representatives from four Exemplar schools, including Barbra Bryan, recognition for the latest members of the 21st Century Learning Exemplars, including the Schools in Ladera Ranch, Mooresville, Concord Township and Redmond, and case studies from 20 Exemplar schools.

The P21 Exemplar Program, instituted in 2013, identifies and showcases schools that are equipping students with the 21st century skills they need to succeed in college, career and life.

There are also five other Goddard Schools with P21 Exemplar status: Cranberry Township, PA (Dina and Matt Speranza); Fort Mill, SC and Rock Hill, SC (Bill and Amy Strickland); Hendersonville, TN (Leisa Byars; Trevor and Sonia Pryce); and Cedar Park, TX (Butch and Maria Aggen). Only 12 preschools nationwide have achieved P21 Exemplar status, and 75% of them are Goddard Schools!

Exemplar Schools are selected through a rigorous application process that includes site visits. Each Exemplar joins a national network that shares best practices to further hone their practice of 21st century teaching and learning.

 

The group was addressed by Congressman Dave Loebsack (2nd Congressional District, IA) and Congressman Ryan Costello (6th Congressional District, PA) who are co-chairs of the Congressional 21st Century Skills Caucus. The event also featured a panel discussion titled “Closing the Skills Gap: Stories from the Field.” Several Congressional representatives also joined the full group after the ceremony to speak with their constituents.
