Liberating Learners School Partnerships
BMEA partners with schools to offer professional development that supports them in developing a relationship-centered school culture by way of restorative practices. Furthermore, BMEA supports schools in developing and implementing an instructional model that focuses on increasing students’ level of independence. This learning model draws from each partner school’s curriculum and positions educators to develop and facilitate instruction relevant to students’ lives. BMEA’s goals are for students to operate and execute at the highest level of knowledge utilization and natural curiosity, thereby producing high-quality work that has the potential to improve the quality of life for the community in which they live.
It is crucial to note that district/school leaders are considered primary critical stakeholders and change agents. Their role goes beyond sponsorship to active participants who are positioned to deepen their knowledge of the framework as they model the foundational social and emotional disposition that stems from a heart-set and mindset shift and not simply a behavioral shift. As leaders cultivate this way of being and doing, BMEA walks alongside leaders to guide, support and assist them as they manage the various external factors that impact the perception of implementation.
