Innovations in school models, tailoring educational approach to student needs, and empowering educators and families have helped to improve schools and student outcomes over the past three decade. We will continue to support efforts that promise to produce new innovations that will spur further improvements.
The foundation is particularly interested in supporting:
- Novel school models, including those that have new approaches to college prep, and career and technical education;
- Citywide enrollment models that include both traditional and public charter schools;
- New ways — beyond test scores — to advance long-term success, including understanding non-cognitive attributes.
