What Is Project 24
Project 24 is an urgent call to action for systemic planning around the effective use of technology and digital learning to achieve the goal of "career and college readiness" for all students. It is a one-stop shop of comprehensive district-level planning tools, expert advice, creative ideas, and tangible suggestions from experienced education experts and nonprofit education membership organizations.

Please note that Project 24 is a non-linear process and does not take 24 months to complete. In fact, district leaders are encouraged to interact as they see fit with the content as it is developed no matter when the learn about Project 24.
