Where everyone has a voice and all voices are heard
Where learning is engaging

COVID-19 update:

Our approach

Milestone is committed to the health and safety of our school community above all.

Accordingly, the Educators’ Cooperative of Milestone has started our 2021-22 school year with Personalized Remote Learning, where students are still able to meet face-to-face with their Advisors regularly, but are continuing to offer learning opportunities from home.

How we decide

Milestone is a membership-based not-for-profit organization, with rights reserved for the voting members of our community. Decisions on which model of school learning we are utilizing (in-person, temporary remote, or longer-term remote models) are made by the Milestone members (which include students, families/caregivers, staff, and community stakeholders who apply for membership).

Meetings and events

All Board of Directors meetings, Design Team meetings, and Committee meetings are open to the public, and may include Public Comment time in the agenda.

In addition, our Advisors are always happy to meet one-on-one to answer questions or chat!
