School Redesign

Innovation Schools Case Studies

Overview

In an effort to capitalize on the successes of innovation schools to date, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (Department), contracted with WestEd to provide the state and the field with an increased understanding of the autonomies and flexibilities that have been authorized to date. This comprehensive project resulted in the development of three case studies in the areas of evolving governance, high district support and implementation, and schedule and calendar and an online searchable database of innovation school autonomies.
