The Collective

The Walden Collective is responsible for running the day-to-day aspects of the  school. The Collective is made up of classroom and arts teachers, the administrative coordinator, the admissions and EDC coordinator, and the business manager. Using a consensus decision-making model, they oversee the day-to-day operations at Walden, planning and implementing the educational programs, designing the curriculum, and making hiring decisions.  They collectively enroll students, define class groups, develop curricula,  evaluate teachers, and communicate with parents.
