Summer Design Program
SDP is a professional development opportunity that provides principal-led school teams with the opportunity to partner with local and national experts to clarify a school-based, student-centered challenge, identify new or known solutions and design an innovative classroom or grade-level solution.
Since the launch in 2013, SDP has served more than 200 principal-led school teams, including the 2017 cohort. Although the program has evolved as we learned what works, several principles remain constant: Educators drive the work, have choice over the partners with whom they work, and engage in a process that is unique to them and their school communities.
In 2018, selected school teams will receive up to one year of specialized professional development support from our content experts, UChicago Impact and National SAM Innovation Project.

The 2018 Summer Design Program application is closed. We plan to finalize selection decisions for the 2018-19 cohort by May 31.
