Wow...What An Amazing Two Days of Learning and Sharing!

The list of meeting dates and other previously scheduled webinars and phone calls are viewable on the Google Calendar linked on the website. Please plan to join us for these opportunities to connect and share your experiences with members of the cohort and to extend your learning. Our goal is to provide a high level of collaboration and support via remote and/or virtual tools. Let us know if there is something we could be doing that we haven’t offered yet! Aren't our friends from Fort Thomas (KY) were looking sharp in their FT Swag?

Don’t Miss This: ”Student Innovation Teams” Cohort!
There has been a very high level of interest in running the Student Innovation Team model at member districts’ high schools. The InnovateK12 team is planning a Spring 2019 event that will bring student leaders from these schools together for a Student Innovation Summit. If you are planning to run a Student Innovation Team program at your high school, we’ll provide a series of opportunities to connect students so that they can share their experiences and insights with each other.
