Two years ago, Price Lab was honored with ASCD's first ever Vision in Action Award. ASCD is an educational leadership organization dedicated to advancing best practices and policies for the success of each learner. It serves over 150,000 members from 145 different countries and provides key educational research and publications such as Ed. Leadership.
The ASCD Whole Child Award is designed to "recognize schools that have gone beyond a vision for educating the whole child to actions that result in learners who are knowledgeable, emotionally and physically healthy, civically active, artistically engaged, prepared for economic self-sufficiency, and ready for the world beyond formal schooling. This award acknowledges those schools that have changed the conversation about education from a focus on narrowly defined academic achievement to one that promotes the development of the whole child: a child who is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged."
In January, a team from ASCD visited our school for two days to create a video of our school to feature at this year's annual conference. The video was released yesterday, just a month after news of our closing. The video showcases our school, its uniqueness, and its commitment to education.
The video is the 'featured video' on ASCD's homepage. If you care to take a peek, I promise it's worth all seven minutes :)
