The LiiNK Project is based on research in the U.S. and other countries to incorporate a much more inclusive, innovative model than traditional public schools have adopted over the past 20 years. The approach traditional public schools have adopted is centered around a required number of minutes in specific content areas daily. Standardized tests are the focus of determining success of a school or grade level achievement. LiiNK is based on improved brain development as a result of physical activity and outdoor exposure throughout the day, and character development taught daily. State requirements are still included.
