Starting Fresh: Designing an Innovative School

Innovation in education is often focused on internal change management, but the last five years have seen an explosion of new school models and the future promises to see even more schools built from scratch across the country. This panel discussion will feature school leaders who are building new schools, focusing on how new schools or programs can act responsibly and intentionally while taking advantage of the freedom to be responsive in such a rapidly changing educational system.
