Innovation has always defined our survival as a species. | Our ability to adapt – our adaptability — is the sister of innovation. | The CAPSS' Innovation Committee is an evolving network of superintendents (Bethel, Bloomfield, Bolton, Branford, CREC, CCSU Teacher Leader Fellowship Program, Farmington, Granby, Guilford, Meriden, Shelton, South Windsor, Stamford, Wallingford, Windham and Woodbridge) focused on preparing our students for the challenges of the mid-to-late 21st Century in the context of innovation.
Request for PK-12 Innovative Educational Idea/Practice
Based on the work of HundrED, the CAPSS Innovation Committee is pleased to invite every Connecticut school district to share one PK-12 innovative educational idea/practice. The goal is to help improve Connecticut education by establishing a platform to share innovative school practices. We hope that every district will participate!
Your district’s educational innovation idea/practice should adhere to the following:
- Innovativeness: The idea should provide a valuable improvement to education.
- Impactful: The idea must have been established for at least one year with demonstrable evidence.
- Scalability: The idea should be able to work in other school districts and you should be willing to serve as a resource regarding implementation.
Submit your innovative idea/practice online. The form is very short and easy to complete, and we've included a link below:
PK-12 Innovative Educational Idea/Practice Form
Essentially, you upload a photo of the innovation, a short description, contact information for the innovational idea, and any resources that may help other districts learn about and/or help them with implementation.
The on-line submission form may be saved as a draft and completed at a later date by clicking on the Save For Later button at the bottom of the form. If you decide to complete the form in more than one sitting, you will be prompted to supply district contact information and an email address. You will be sent a link to re-access the form.
Here is where your innovative practices will appear.
