Participate in the K-12 Innovation Partnership

Do you have an innovative idea that you want to put into practice?
Are you engaged in unique partnerships that are directly impacting student learning?
Are you applying the new B.C. curriculum in a way that should be shared across the province?

If so, the K-12 Innovation Partnership might be right for you.

Public and independent schools in B.C. have the opportunity to participate in the K-12 Innovation Partnership in two ways:

Partnership Grant

The partnership itself is for schools that are implementing, exploring or expanding innovative teaching and learning practices and partnerships in B.C. schools. Schools accepted into the partnership have access to a small grant, are given opportunities to collaborate with a post-secondary institute or subject matter expert to investigate impact and outcomes, and have the opportunity to collaborate and network with other like-minded schools in person up to two times per year.

Are you interested in knowing which projects were accepted into the partnership in the 2015/16 school year? Read the summary of First Intake Projects and Second Intake Projects

Innovation Inventory

This is a showcase of innovative practices that are currently underway in schools through B.C. If you are already actively involved in ongoing innovative teaching and learning practices, or have unique partnerships you want to tell other educators about, this is the place for you. The inventory is a great place to share your experience, lessons learned, and to build connections that will help further expand innovation schools and communities throughout the province.

Visit the Partnership + Innovation Showcase to learn about some unique or innovative practices taking place throughout the province. The showcase is being added to frequently, so please check back.

Current Intake Status

Current Intake Status We currently we have 31 projects being supported by the Innovation Partnership, in 23 school districts and 5 independent schools throughout the province. To ensure these projects are properly supported, and that information on the implementation and outcomes of these projects are collected and shared across the province, we are delaying a third intake at this time.

Details on a third intake will be sent to Superintendents, Principals and Vice-Principals – and posted here – as soon as they are available.
