In the coming year, 49 of our 50 innovation schools will be up for renewal. In addition to being a step required by the Innovation Schools Act of 2008, this is an opportunity to reset the format and flexibilities of innovation plans moving forwards. Taking steps to simplify systems around innovation in DPS will provide space for schools to propose new, innovative practices that support students and school communities, and share those learnings with the greater innovation community.
Below you can access materials created by DPS Authorizing & Accountability to support innovation renewal. Please note that schools have been asked to make copies of these materials.
