The Innovation Cluster currently includes ten MNPS schools , which are being transformed by strong teaching teams and active student leadership in order to build school communities of excellence and pride. Their work is guided in part by the Inspirational Schools Partnership, which capitalizes on the strengths of individual schools and promotes the sharing of best practices between schools. The Innovation Cluster operates under the leadership of Dr. Lesley A. Isabel. Read her Bio.
The Innovation Cluster was designed in the summer of 2011 to assist schools that need extra resources and support to boost student achievement. MNPS is using the School Improvement Grant to implement these changes.
