Students deserve relevant, rigorous experiences.


Authentic partnerships with families and communities are essential.


Leaders and teachers must have a roadmap and robust structures to support their growth.

To engage students in liberated learning that draws on the assets and uniqueness of each school community. 


To fundamentally change the way leaders partner with school communities to reimagine and implement liberated student learning experiences.


How It All Started

LiberatED Way emerged from Academy for Urban School Leadership's learnings from over 15 years of transforming neighborhood public schools in Chicago. Our work began as a pilot within the AUSL network to embrace innovation in school improvement. 

How We Developed
