Portrait of a Graduate Design Team

The Iowa City Community School District has joined forces with Battelle for Kids as we prepare to design our Portrait of a Graduate.  Our Portrait of a Graduate is a collective vision that articulates our community’s aspirations for all of our students and helps to shape the future direction of our schools. This approach involves the entire school community—educators in partnership with students, parents, businesses, and others—to make 21st century learning a reality for all students.

As we embark on this process, we are currently seeking candidates for our Portrait of a Graduate Design Team. The team will consist of students, parents, teachers, support staff employees, school leaders, board members, higher education representatives, business leaders, social services representatives, faith community representatives, and community members.  If you are interested in participating, please complete the brief application that can be found here:  Applications are due by February 14. 

The design team will meet four times to complete their work.  Please note, to be a part of the Portrait of a Graduate Design Team, you must be able to attend all four of the meetings outlined below:

  • February 24, 4:30-7:00 pm
  • March 25, 4:30-7:00 pm
  • April 27, 4:30-7:00 pm
  • May 27, 4:30-7:00 pm
