Academic Credit Option

Innovation Schools Act
The Innovation Schools Act was designed to provide a pathway for schools and districts to develop and implement innovative practices in a wide variety of areas and contexts to improve student outcomes. The Act provides a formal process that allows schools or groups of schools to request to their local school boards for waivers from district-level policies and for school boards to request the Colorado State Board of Education for waivers from certain state-level laws and regulations.

The Act is intended to improve student achievement by granting schools a high degree of autonomy in implementing curriculum, making personnel decisions, organizing the school day, determining the most efficient use of resources, and in general, organizing the delivery of high-quality educational services, thereby empowering each public school to tailor its services most effectively and efficiently to meet the needs of the population of students it services.
