Result of Funding: It is the expectation of the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (Department) and the Executive Office of Education (EOE) that the selected Fellows will submit an Innovation Schools Prospectus to their respective district superintendents and screening committees. Additionally, the Department and EOE expect that the selected Fellows will serve as their respective district's lead applicant for the prospective innovation school and progress through each stage of the authorization process. As a result of completing the innovation schools authorization process, the fellowship will support the implementation of three educational models.

Innovation schools are in-district public schools that operate with increased autonomy and flexibilities in six key areas: curriculum, instruction, and assessment; schedule and calendar; staffing; professional development; district policies and procedures; and budget. The innovation school model is rooted in the belief that autonomy and flexibility in one or more of the six identified areas will establish the school conditions that lead to improved teaching and learning.
Fellowship grant awards are for $75,000 per district/fellow.
