Tell Us Your Big Idea! Launching Pre-Application Surveys to Gather Info on Innovative Schools

Earlier this year we shared our strategy for 2015 and beyond.  A major pillar of our strategy is to invest in teams of educators across the U.S. who are designing schools that prepare and inspire each and every student to reach his or her most ambitious dreams and plans.  We aim to support schools that set bold goals for their students and embrace an expanded definition of student success that includes high academic outcomes as well as mastery of other critical life skills that students need to succeed. 

Now we want to hear from you!  

What is your audacious school vision?  Perhaps you have a dream of launching 100 diverse, student-centered STEM charter schools in the next 15 years. Or you are a leadership team in an existing school with strong results, but you feel compelled to provide students greater ownership over their learning path and pace via digital content and project-based learning. Whether you fit in these categories or another, if you are innovating on the student experience in ways that you believe will personalize their learning and significantly improve their life outcomes, we want learn about your plans for the future. 

BIG Idea

Our team – myself, Liz Arney, Arielle Rittvo, and Alex Caram – are launching Pre-Application Surveys to gather more information from you. Currently, we are primarily targeting two types of applicants: (1) entrepreneurial individuals or teams with plans to start new charter networks in the next 3 years and (2) existing, high-performing charter networks (CMOs) with plans to pilot new designs in existing schools and/or launch innovative new schools. If neither of these apply to you, that’s okay too – you are still welcome to share your ideas with us.

Our Innovative Schools page has more information and links to our Pre-Application Surveys.  We encourage you to complete a survey so we can learn more about your model.  We will review survey responses on a rolling basis and will respond to all applicants within three weeks of submission.

This process enhances learners with achieved crossed skills. The ultimate goal is successful measured outcomes, in reading and comprehension skills to become successful “LIFE TIME READERS”.

  2. Educational research discovered by us has revealed 11 “essential conditions” that classroom teachers must perform, if they are to have a successful academic program. Unfortunately, these 11 items are so time consuming that no teacher, no matter how well organized or talented can perform these 11 items and still deliver an effective academic program.
    To correct this situation, our technology and content management development team has created a cloud based, relational data based that has enabled us to automate all 11 of these tasks into a single, yet easy to use instructional support system. As a result, teachers will never again have to create a lesson plan or test, grades papers, diagnose student outcomes, or provide targeted remedial instruction because this intelligent system has automated 100% of these functions that will actually reduce a teacher’s workload by as much as 75% while providing a level of academic oversight never before possible.

    This unique and powerful data management and support programs will resolve the issues concerning why so many of our nation’s school have done poorly on mandated testing and provides an integrated solution that will easily and accurately fix this problem. our product’s use enable us to guarantee student and teacher success, while and eliminating the need for credit recovery and summer school programs.
