Community Initiatives

Consistent with the emergent characteristics of the LHS itself and the grassroots approach of the Community, major steps toward realizing the LHS vision are accomplished through self-organizing, multi-stakeholder, collaborative initiatives.

  • Each initiative is hosted by a trusted neutral convener.
  • To date, the Community has catalyzed an initiative to identify Essential Standards to Enable Learning (ESTEL).
  • Other initiatives to begin soon include LHS governance and the creation of a technology “sandbox” for federated data sharing.
  • For ESTEL, participants have travelled across the country (and in a few cases, around the world) at their own expense to actively participate; others have engaged via webinars, conference calls, and email.
  • All initiatives will be designed to ensure that grassroots collaborative efforts result in sustained action and engagement as well as continued and meaningful impact.
  • Consistent with the emergent characteristics of the LHS itself and the grassroots approach of the Community, major steps toward realizing the LHS vision are accomplished through self-organizing, multi-stakeholder, collaborative initiatives.
