Have you thought about starting your own school?  Do you have creative ideas for rethinking the way things have always been done?

The Innovation Schools initiative is a part recent legislation in Massachusetts known as An Act Relative to the Achievement Gap. This initiative allows groups of education leaders and stakeholders – such as teachers – to develop their own proposal for an innovative school.

Join us to hear from the Massachusetts Secretary of Education, Paul Reville, about the opportunities this model presents for educators.  This will be an informational session specifically for educators interested in learning about Innovation Schools, including how you can get involved and the various supports for planning that you can take advantage of.  There will be an extended question and answer session with local leaders and teachers who have submitted successful proposals and who are working in Innovation Schools right now.

Please RSVP to to reserve your spot!
