What is your Big Idea for Philadelphia?
Making Our Schools Great
The School Redesign Initiative (SRI) is a call to our talented, committed educators to lead the critical work of redesigning our city's neighborhood schools to meet the demands of the 21st century. Through the School Redesign Initiative, the School District of Philadelphia invites partners with a talent and passion for school improvement to submit a proposal to redesign a school. Exceptional applicants that are able to leverage advances in research, technology, and practice to put forth innovative ideas for how to engage all students in learning for the 21st century - as well as to demonstrate a commitment to the school community, an ability to lead effectively, and strong instructional expertise - will be selected to assume the leadership of a District school beginning in the fall of 2015. In the interim, selected applicants will spend the year working with the local school community to tailor the academic program to the needs of the students at the school. Selected applicants will be provided with funding to support their design year, as well as work space, networking opportunities, and connections to local and national experts to inform the design process.
