Innovation Team Purpose

Innovation Design Teams are catalysts for change. Teams are comprised of various stakeholders to assess district systems and processes and collaborate to design new solutions that impact the district, campus, and classroom level. Innovation Design Teams are intended to create an effective, agile and responsive organization to enhance the AISD urban school experience. Innovation Design Teams all have different goals and outcomes as well as different time frames. Therefore some teams’ work may be short term, long term, or ongoing. As needs arise new teams will be formed.

Innovation Design Teams meet at minimum once a month. However upon initiation, teams may meet more often to expedite the work. Each team is comprised of a lead, multiple district team representatives, campus leadership, and community stakeholders.
