Schools of Innovation Plan


Arkansas district leaders who are interested in submitting a Schools of Innovation plan are encouraged to design new and creative alternatives to the existing instructional and administrative practices. These changes are intended to improve academic performance and learning for all students. Approval to become a School of Innovation is determined by the Commissioner of Education and is granted for a four year period.

Applications for 2014-2015 must be submitted online by May 1, 2014. Applications for subsequent years from 2015-2016 forward must be submitted by March 1 of each year.
