We came together in December of 2007 and gave ourselves an ambitious task - to innovate a collaborative education system that would serve as a model for our city and beyond. Dr. Steve Cady provided the consulting and facilitation support necessary to design and implement the roadmap for this initiative. The Charrettes are divided into three Phases: (A) Strategy and Program Configuration, (B) Design Specifics, and (C) Implementation and Sustainability.
We have completed the Charrettes and are now implementing strategic projects (click on link to left for details). The roadmap entailed Charrettes or planning meetings where key stakeholders and decision makers collaborate "real time" in order to accelerate the design and execution of a strategic plan. We have now formed the The Innovation in Education Alliance to oversee the continued long-term effectiveness and implementation.
