The Office of School Reform and Innovation (OSRI) provides support and guidance to site-based or departmental innovative ideas that otherwise would not be implemented because they involve multiple departments/divisions, or may require a change in policy or regulation.  Our goal is to identify, implement, and ultimately replicate/scale sustainable practices that result in increased student achievement, and/or greater operational efficiency.

Individuals are able to submit innovative proposals during the month of the October to be considered for implementation during the upcoming school year. Proposals are used to build project plans which assist in the development and implementation of these innovative programs.
