Amazing Stories

We at RIDE are always interested in sharing great work under way in Rhode Island schools.  Here are some of the many creative programs and initiatives taking place in our schools!

All of us at RIDE often mention programs and initiatives that are innovative and effective when we speak with community groups, business leaders, elected officials, and people in the education field.

Don’t be left out of the picture! We are collecting brief accounts of amazing things happening in your school for sharing on our website and via social media. The past collection of submissions was the source for our invitations to school teams to showcase their work at the Rhode Island State of Education Address in May 2017.

Theme of the Month

Each month, we will announce a particular theme we want to highlight – but any amazing stories are always welcome!

  • September 2017: Back to School
  • October 2017: Social Emotional Learning
  • November 2017: Nutrition
  • December 2017: Computer Science (CS4RI)

How to Share

We are asking each Rhode Island school and school community to send us one or two brief accounts of amazing things happening in your school. There are two ways to share:

  • Per submission, send an email of no more than 100 words or a one-minute video clip, using the subject line “Amazing,” (and noting the monthly theme, if applicable) to info@ride.ri.gov.
  • Tag us on Twitter with @RIDeptEd and #amazing to share your story of how your school is reimagining learning.
