WHAT ARE THE INNOVATION ACADEMIES?
The five academies focus on ARTS INTEGRATION, STEM, HUMANITIES IN PRACTICE (HIP), PROBLEM-BASED LEARNING, and MINDS-IN-MOTION.
This integrated planning academy model supports the CCSD goals of learning engagement, deeper learning and student voice while aligning strategically with local school initiatives.
Each academy offers specialized and interactive PL training to empower school-based teams that will support the implementation of innovative practice at the school level. Common elements of each academy include teacher-designed digital portfolios, social media sharing and the opportunity to be a part of the Cobb Innovative Showcase in the spring!
HOW CAN SCHOOL TEAMS PARTICIPATE IN AN ACADEMY?
School principals can select a team of teacher leaders to be a part of an academy that best aligns to their school instructional goals and strategic plans.
