About Pilot for School
Welcome to Pilot for School! This networked platform complements K-12 instruction by giving teachers a way to connect with each other, share resources and use local news coverage to illustrate academic concepts. This service is free for teachers and their students; the Knight Foundation’s Prototype Fund provided initial funding to support the system’s efforts to promote a sense of community, bolster civic engagement and promote media and information literacy skills. Pilot for School is supported through the generous donations of subscribers and sponsors of The Virginian-Pilot’s Newspapers in Education program.
