Innovation Incubator Application: Boston Public Schools Winter 2019 Cohort
BPS Innovation is excited to announce the next chapter of the BPS Innovation Incubator! In collaboration with School Retool, a professional learning fellowship from IDEO and the Stanford d. school, the BPS Innovation Incubator will help teams (school leaders + educators) redesign school culture using small-scale experiments.

There will be two winter cohorts available to teams throughout BPS, and this work will build off of the great work started in the first BPS School Retool cohort this fall.

We are seeking teams of leaders, innovators, creators, and designers who want to change the status quo of public education, are passionate about access to Deeper Learning for all students, are willing and ready to try out a new, immersive learning experience, and are committed to fully participating in the work of the fellowship.

The BPS Innovation Incubator is facilitated by School Retool and funded by the Nellie Mae Education Foundation.

Teams of 3 must include: the school principal or headmaster and two lead teachers.
