The Office of School Innovation Announces Cohort 2 Members of the innovateNJ Community

The New Jersey Department of Education's  (NJDOE) Office of School Innovation is pleased to announce the Cohort 2 members of the innovateNJ Community.


On Wednesday April 22, 2015, the Office of School Innovation inducted the members of Cohort 2 innovateNJ Community.  Seventeen Districts from the State of New Jersey became part of the ever-growing innovateNJ Community.  After a welcoming speech from Assistant Commissioner Evo Popoff and Director of School Innovation Takecia Saylor, the members were treated to amazing presentations from members of the innovateNJ Community who are already partnering and collaborating with other districts to bring best innovative practices to all students in their districts.

The Office of School Innovation congratulates the Cohort 2 members of the innovateNJ Community.  After a lengthy and rigorous application process, seventeen districts were selected to become part of this vibrant community leading the way in innovative practices throughout the state of New Jersey.  The members were selected based on their established innovative practices across all schools in their district.

The application process is held twice per year.  Applications were open to all districts in the state of New Jersey.  In March, selected applicants were informed of their acceptance. Cohort 2 members had the pleasure of meeting one another at the Department of Education in Trenton, New Jersey, where the first convening took place.  New members also had the opportunity to network and collaborate with other members along with establishing partnerships with other new members.
