This fall, several Fellows from Innovate Public Schools’ Fellowship program launched new public schools across the Bay Area.
Start-up Schools Fellowship

School may still be out for students, but many principals and teachers are hard at work learning this July and August. The summer is a time many schools are using to focus on adjusting their practice to the new Common Core standards and collaboratively plan.
Cornerstone Academy in San Jose recently gave the new SBAC a test run and they share their tips for other schools to get ready for the test.
Innovate staff will be sharing their expertise in how to design and run a high-quality public school in a series of three deep dive workshops at the California Charter Schools Association Conference, March 16-19 in Sacramento.
This year, Innovate kicked off a yearlong leadership development series to support Rocketship principals to foster the mindset, leadership skills, and school design strategies needed to ensure that their schools serve students exceptionally well from day one of the upcoming school year.
The second year of our Fellowship kicked off in July 2014 with 18 leaders representing a wide range of school districts and charter schools from across Silicon Valley.
