Educator Empowerment Awards

About the opportunityteacher for EEG page

In partnership with IPS, The Mind Trust offers successful IPS schools the support and resources to convert their schools into Innovation Network Schools.

As the first city in the country to offer this ground-breaking opportunity to successful district schools, The Mind Trust could not be more excited to partner with great schools to support them in achieving increased autonomy to protect the fidelity of their successful educational models.
