Rhode Island’s XQ Challenge


XQ+RI is a first-of-its-kind partnership that will engage communities to create student-centered schools that help prepare all young people for the future. XQ is the nation’s leading organization dedicated to reimagining high school education so every student succeeds – no matter their race, gender, or zip code.

In 2015, XQ – Rhode Island’s partner in this endeavor – launched as a nationwide open call to reimagine and redesign the American high school. More than 10,000 people from every state answered the call with unique ideas for innovative, student-centered high schools. XQ+RI is the organization’s first statewide partnership, and XQ will be providing implementation grants of up to $500,000 each for successful redesign plans.

Read about this exciting initiative and what it means for Rhode Island schools in RIDE’s official announcement, and join the conversation on social media using the hashtag, #XQRI.
