The Mind Trust to launch major national recruitment effort for two education initiatives in Indianapolis

Indianapolis – The Mind Trust tomorrow will launch Talent Matters, an effort to recruit talented innovators and entrepreneurs to take part in two transformative efforts to improve public education in Indianapolis:
Charter School Design Challenge. The Mind Trust created the Charter School Incubator (CSI) in 2011 to launch or expand excellent public charter schools in Indianapolis. The Design Challenge represents the second phase of CSI awards, and The Mind Trust will conduct a national search for four transformative, “break-the-mold” charter school models. Four winning school designs will receive $250,000 each to develop and launch the school in Indianapolis.
Innovation School Fellowship, Round 3. The Mind Trust created the fellowship in 2014, in partnership with the Indianapolis Pubic Schools (IPS) and the City of Indianapolis, to help launch high-quality and autonomous Innovation Network Schools within IPS, the city’s largest school district. The Mind Trust is now recruiting for the third class of fellows.

Leaders of The Mind Trust will be available to the media to discuss this major effort.

When: Tomorrow – Tuesday, Aug. 25; 1:15 p.m.

Where: The Mind Trust, 1630 N. Meridian St., Room 450
(Guest parking is available in the alley behind the WFYI building)

Who: David Harris, Founder & CEO, The Mind Trust; Brandon Brown, Vice President of Education Initiatives, The Mind Trust
