Maximizing Innovation on Any Budget

Thursday, Feb. 26, 2015, 2 to 3 p.m. ET

Being an innovator means “thinking big” and inspiring everyone in your district to do the same—even when your budget is $4,500 per student.

That’s what Linda Clark, who is superintendent of the West Ada, Idaho school district, does today. In fact, she’s been doing it for decades. Learn how her teachers acquire technology, and use it to engage students. And find out how Ms. Clark collaborates with other innovators in her role as leader of a district that is a founding member of The Digital Promise League of Innovative Schools.

This national coalition of leaders in 57 districts is dedicated to improving outcomes for students and solving K-12 school challenges with learning technology and education research. Sara Schapiro, the league’s director, will explain how the most forward-thinking schools innovate.
