 Contact Marisa Mendonsa, (413) 625.9811 x1303

We're looking for a diverse group of staff/teachers, students, parents, and community members to participate in a weekend-long workshop to have an active voice in re-imagining Mohawk's pathways to graduation. This opportunity is possible through mini-grant funding by Mass IDEAS, an initiative of Next Generational Learning Challenges at EDUCAUSE, with generous support from the Barr Foundation and the Nellie Mae Education Foundation.

The Mohawk Weekend Design Institute provides our community stakeholders with an opportunity to participate in reviewing and re-imagining Mohawk’s graduation requirements. The two-day workshop will be on Saturday, January 26 and Sunday, January 27 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

We need you! We are seeking a diverse group of 20 stakeholders to help us with this important work! We will give each participant (including students) a $200 stipend, providing they attend both workshop days. Following this institute, participants also will attend two follow-up evening meetings where our group will draft a new graduation requirements proposal. Later, we will present this proposal to our community for feedback before the school committee receives it for final approval.

Interested? We are now accepting applications! Visit our website. The Mohawk Mass IDEAS Design Team will review applications and select 20 participants. We ask that staff/teachers, parents, and community members fill out an application. Students, please fill out our student application.

Hard copies of the application will be available in the Mohawk main office. Deadline to apply is Monday, January 7.
