District Design 2022 was developed because we realized that we must seize opportunities to revolutionize the traditional school system to better prepare today's students. Design Thinking is one set of skills we are leveraging to do just this.

Design Thinking Process Graphic
Design Thinking is a set of skills that prepares students to solve large, complex, cross-curricular, real-world problems by teaching them effective ways of learning and collaborating. It uses a process, made up of discrete stages, for creating innovative solutions. Students develop skills to solve problems confidently and creatively. Design Thinking draws upon logic, imagination, intuition, and systemic reasoning, to explore possibilities of what could be - and to create desired outcomes that benefit the end user (the customer).
