Microsoft K12 Education Transformation Framework

An effective, flexible platform for education transformation grounded by research from academics, experts, and policy makers.

Leadership & policy

An open culture of learning and exchange across the system, with a collective buy-in of vision and shared goals that motivates leaders and educators to drive change.

What does transformative leadership & policy look like?

A shared vision and strategy that sets the direction for the entire school system.

How can we work toward it?

Deep and sustainable transformation happens only with the support from every level – schools, local authorities, and national governments.

What’s transformative leadership & policy all about?

Vision for change

Strategic planning & quality assurance

Partnerships & local capacity building

Inclusion & accessibility

Education systems with an easily communicated vision, understood and articulated by all, are more successful in achieving their goals.

Vision for change

A shared, inclusive vision for school systems representing the aspirations of students, teachers, leaders and the community today with the flexibility for ongoing revisions to address continual change.

From day one, quality assurance is vital. Think easily monitored metrics that help leaders assess progress and course correct where needed.

Strategic planning & quality assurance

Monitoring and evaluating can help transformation programs define and measure quality, gauge progress, increase stakeholder participation and empower leaders to drive change.

Effective change processes require a coalition of partners with complementary competencies and knowledge.

Partnerships & local capacity building

Effective partnership can increase enrollment, student outcomes and cost efficiencies. A clear understanding of all organizations (public and private) involved ensures the greatest possible teamwork and success can be achieved.

To help every student realize their full potential, inclusion and accessibility must be integral to policy and implementation strategy.

Inclusion & accessibility

As students are encouraged to take greater responsibility for their learning and develop technology skills, schools have a responsibility to provide accessible technology that can meet the needs of all students.
