MOREnet Announces Exciting Partnership Proposal for a K-12 Member District

Monday, April 15, 2013

MOREnet’s purpose is to be a trusted partner to its members for technology, innovation and support. To meet this purpose we are constantly researching and exploring new technologies, processes and solutions to help our members adapt and succeed in this rapidly changing technology environment.

MOREnet is looking to partner with a visionary K-12 member district to improve student performance through the adoption of technology-enabled, student-centered learning. The partnership will work to remove technical barriers and adopt, adapt, and create a set of services to support the changing pedagogy and resources adopted or created by the district.

MOREnet has budgeted up to $400,000, over a three-year period, to support the research project with the school district selected for the partnership. Our goal at the end of the project will be to demonstrate the ability to enable districts to measurably improve student performance in a sustainable environment through the development of practical approaches to transforming and supporting school districts engaged in student-centered learning practices.

Interested districts should submit a proposal describing the vision the district wants to pursue and how it best meets the criteria of the research project. To learn more about the research project and the proposal submission guidelines please visit http://www.more.net/content/k12-research-project. A downloadable research project solicitation will be found there along with the project schedule and eligibility requirements.

MOREnet will be conducting a Web Seminar regarding the K-12 District Research Project Solicitation from 2-3 p.m. on Wednesday, April 24. You can submit questions before Friday, April 19, by e-mailing research@more.net and we will answer your questions during the Web Seminar. Register for the Web Seminar.
