At A Glance
School of Innovation
A School of Innovation is a new designation for schools as a result of Act 601 adopted by the Arkansas Legislature in the 2013 session. A school may apply for waivers from existing state education standards which have a high likelihood improve outcomes for students. The State Education Commissioner is charged with approving applications for Schools of Innovation. Beside Leverett Elementary in Fayetteville, six Springdale schools were approved as Schools of Innovation. They are Springdale and Har-Ber high schools; Central, George and Lakeside junior high schools; and Westwood Elementary School
