Community Info Sessions

  • Have you thought about what skills our students need, or what information our students should know in order to succeed post-graduation?


    We would like to hear from you as we look to take the next steps in our ongoing Portrait of a Graduate initiative - a community-driven process that will define success for Lowell students, including the values, knowledge, skills, and work habits they will need to thrive as learners, workers, and leaders in the 21st century.


    Lowell Public Schools, working alongside Project LEARN, launched the Portrait of a Graduate initiative in March 2020, thanks to receiving an award from the Barr Foundation. Since then, the Portrait team has been working diligently to engage our community stakeholders, including students, teachers, family and community members, and industry representatives, in defining the Portrait of a Lowell graduate, even in the midst of the COVID-19 Pandemic.


    The Portrait team will be holding two virtual forums so we can present our latest draft report and get your valuable feedback as we work to complete this project. Both forums will take place via Zoom:



    • Friday, November 20 from 12:00pm - 1:00pm

      • This is an interactive info session via webinar. Hear about themes that emerged from this planning year and our draft Portrait. Join this session if you want to learn general information and have the option of participating in a lively discussion.
