Event description
Join us for a half-day summit exploring the current state and future vision for innovation zones in Denver Public Schools.

About this Event

The Beacon Network Schools, the Luminary Learning Network, the Northeast Denver Innovation Zone, and Lyra cordially invite you to join us for a deep-dive exploration of DPS innovation zones.

Since approving the state's first innovation zone in 2016, DPS has been a leader in using the model to empower school leaders, teachers, and local communities with more control over their resources, time, and staff. Today, eleven DPS neighborhood schools are members of three innovation zones.

How are DPS innovation zones benefiting students, educators, and community members? How are they designed to operate? How does a nonprofit, community-led governance structure increase accountability and collaboration? What other lessons have we learned about how to strengthen and sustain these innovative networks of schools?

Our agenda will include:

  • The history and context of innovation zones
  • The power and potential of zones
  • A presentation of recently produced research
  • Current opportunities and challenges
