TIP Members

TIP creates opportunities for connections – among superintendents, with dedicated staff, and through supporting strategic alliances. We are creating, within TIP, focused networks where, across school districts, we offer means of collaboration and support. We intentionally seek diversity among our superintendents.  We also seek diversity in the districts that they represent – urban and rural, small and large, growing and declining populations, and relatively well and under-resourced communities. With a diverse membership, we are able to better explore innovation in a variety of settings in order to assess the scalability of promising practices.
