The Innovation Project (TIP) is a collaborative working group of forward-thinking North Carolina public school district superintendents supported by a team of staff and collaborators.
As a collaborative, we approach innovation through an equity lens where we strive for every student and every community to thrive. We ground our work in objective evidence while acknowledging the need to thoughtfully consider and implement promising, pioneering practices.
Our current projects are driven by the themes of rethinking, reimagining, and redesigning public education. These touchstones orient our approach to decision-making and guide our project design. We build networks across our school districts and communities that accelerate and sustain innovation.
New TIP projects emerge from rigorous analysis of research and national best practices, which inform superintendents’ collaboration in the design of innovation.
