EDUCATION: INNOVATIVE LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS
We support creative learning solutions that empower those closest to students — teachers, schools leaders, parents, and community partners — to take lead roles in advancing student success and academic outcomes.
Our grants and resources in this focus area may support:
- New learning models and autonomous schools – including charters and innovation schools – with a very high bar for results
- Informal out-of-system learning environments (such as micro-schools or learning pods)
- Organizations and individuals that want to pilot new ideas during the summer and out-of-school time
- Initiatives outside of Denver (since Gates is a major contribution to Denver is through RootED)
