Innovation Report Card
As part of oursystemic approach to innovation, we've emphasized assessing and analyzing how we're doing.
One of the ways we do this is to create an annuaI
Innovation Report Card 2011-2012 (PDF) that grades
our yearly performance on a series of innovation benchmarks.
To develop this evaluation, we worked with Hanover Research Institute to identify measurements of innovation
for private sector industries. We then modified and tweaked those measures to fit our educational work.
Our latest annual Innovation Report Card 2012-2013 (PDF) was published in the summer of 2013, and measures our organization on 18 different metrics, ranging from the number of new products, services, or processes developed to the percentage of senior management roles that require facilitating innovation in the description.
Over time, we are hopeful that the report card will serve as an important tool for our district to identify areas of needed improvement, and to refine our system of innovation.
