PILOT AND INNOVATIVE PROJECTS
POLICYThe actual trial implementation, or pilot, of programs or other educational innovations is an important component of ongoing educational research and evaluation. Schools are encouraged to pilot or implement innovative projects relative to new curricula, new instructional or resource materials, new methodology, new instructional arrangements, or new facilities, with the aim of identifying practices which contribute to improved student learning and achievement and/or instruction.
The Board of Education shall maintain the authority to accept, reject, or request alterations in any pilot or innovative project which requires additional funds and to request an evaluation report at any point.
