Operator Application Process

For Operations Beginning in the 2021-22 School Year

The ISD welcomes operators that can bring authentic and strategic innovation to our school turnaround efforts. Because schools transferred into the ISD are low-performing schools, there are a high percentage of students performing below grade level. It is critical that the ISD partner with  operators that has proven experience in implementing changes that accelerate student growth and achievement, both inside and outside the school setting.

The Innovative School District will seek qualified operators for schools identified and transferred into the district for the 2021-22 school year. An announcement detailing the intent-to-apply and application processes will be available in late summer or early fall 2020. Please check back for additional information.
