After school visits, focus groups, design sessions, and dozens of interviews with superintendents and district leaders, Digital Promise is launching new initiatives to expand the impact and scale of the League of Innovative Schools.

Our goal in this work? To advance equity and excellence. We will prioritize and practice the advancement of equity for the 2.2 million students our leaders serve, so that each student has access to high-quality, research-backed, innovative learning opportunities.

Advancing equity requires prioritization and purposeful practices. In the near-term, we intend to:

  • Conduct research to identify equity-focused challenges;
  • Identify historically underserved student populations within the League;
  • Engage stakeholders (including students, parents, and community members) in a collaborative process and design of solutions;
  • Design measures to evaluate reach and impact on diverse populations; and
  • Grow with intention.

We are looking to expand our network of superintendents and district leaders who are committed to quality learning experiences, and invite leaders across the country to apply to join us. We are specifically interested in receiving applications from districts that add to the diversity of our membership and models for education innovation. You can learn more about our current League members here.

The application for the 2018-2019 cohort of the League of Innovative Schools is open through April 2, 2018. Learn more here.
