Achievable Dream Academies: A Grade K-12 Partnership with Newport News Public Schools This is one in a series of blog posts about the recent Midwest High School SIG Conference, held May 18-19, in Chicago. During the session Organizing for High School Change: Increased Learning Time, Lee Vreeland, Director of Education and Student Services at the Achievable Dream Academies, described how she and her colleagues have used time as a resource to implement their vision of social, academic, and moral education. At Achievable Dream, they focus on two key questions:
- What do children need to succeed?
- What do schools need to create an environment in which children learn and succeed?
