LPS INNOVATION

Committed to solving problems, scaling what works, & sharing resources

COLLABORATIVE INNOVATION

LPS is dedicated to improving equity in educational outcomes. We believe in listening to and learning from our students and communities, leveraging best practice research and then working collaboratively to innovate new approaches to critical challenges in urban education.

We encourage innovation across our network but dedicate resources based on priorities aligned to the twin goals of our mission: Increasing our students’ readiness for college, career and community leadership and increasing equitable results for students of color and poverty across the nation.
