Dear New School Rules Alumni,

We are so excited to launch a monthly New School Rules (NSR) resource-share, 6 on 6!  On the 6th of each month, we will be sharing out 6 items ranging from check-in and check-out questions to resources that are inspiring us, in the hopes that they will inspire you, too. 

We’ve been so energized by the enthusiasm and excitement that you have brought to our institutes, seminars, webinars, and book clubs, and we want that enthusiasm and excitement to spread. Please take a look, and let us know what you think. We’d also love to feature stories from your schools and districts about how the New School Rules are changing the way you work. If you'd like to be featured, please share a quick snapshot of a responsive practice you are trying in your school and/or district on the check-out question survey.
