What is Innovation?

The Office of Innovation and Improvement (OII) supports educators across the country to develop, learn from, and scale new and effective approaches to serving our nation’s highest-need students. These teachers, school leaders, and their partners in school districts and nonprofit organizations are at the forefront of building the tools and strategies that enable all our students to succeed. Through partnerships with schools, school districts, nonprofit organizations and states, OII drives education innovation by both seeding new strategies, and bringing proven approaches to scale.
