QED builds and disseminates models to help others understand what student-centered learning innovation looks like.

Making Community Connections Charter School (MC2) is a competency-based middle/high school program for students seeking “choice and voice” in their educational experience.

Schools of Distinction include 35 outstanding schools that have embraced the Schools Attuned philosophy and implemented QED’s Neurodevelopmental Framework for Learning to do amazing work with students in a broad range of school settings. These schools demonstrate how to achieve success among diverse and complex learners through the use of a wide range of creative learning concepts that take into consideration students’ strengths, affinities, and challenges.

QED served as the primary technical assistance provider to the Asia Society International Studies School Network Project Mastery initiative, funded by the Gates Foundation. We worked with Denver, Houston, and Newfound, NH school districts to develop demonstrations of proficiency-based pathways and capturing mastery in digital portfolios.

In addition, we have worked or are working with the Iowa Department of Education, 10 New England school districts, and the Freeport School District (IL) to provide facilitation and coaching for transformation to high quality, student-centered, standards-based learning for every student.
