Some folks who read Monday’s story on Tools of the Mind were wondering about where the program expanded this year after the 2010-11 pilot at Powell and Garfield. DCPS said the 26 additional schools were selected through a competitive application process that was open to all Title I elementary schools and ECs. The criteria included “buy in” at the teacher and school level, as well as commitment to the two-year training program that Tools requires. The schools are:
