News: innovation zones

Since 2015, Gates Family Foundation has championed innovation zones as a way for local educators and communities to exercise more school-based autonomy — to build community-level ownership, drive improvement, and expand quality. We were intimately involved in the creation of the Luminary Learning Network, Denver’s first innovation zone, and continue to provide technical expertise and support leadership development for the creation of new zones.
