League of Innovative Schools

Across the country, forward-thinking education leaders are improving outcomes for students and solving the challenges facing K-12 schools through learning technology and education research. The Digital Promise League of Innovative Schools is a national coalition of school district superintendents that fosters collaboration between education leaders and entrepreneurs, researchers, and thought partners.

League members represent more than 3.2 million students in 57 districts and 27 states. Their experiences reflect the diversity and shared challenges of public education in America.


The League is a place where innovation and excellence can flourish. At League meetings, superintendents discuss their challenges, share successful strategies, and solve problems together. By participating in research, they gain valuable insights that help solve problems and spark new ideas. In working groups, they plan projects that take ideas to action. Digital Promise documents and shares outcomes so others can learn about and adopt promising strategies.

A vibrant ecosystem of educators, entrepreneurs, researchers, and thought partners working together on shared priorities, the League leads to better decision-making and greater innovation in learning and leadership practices. The League also aims to accelerate the pace of change in public education nationwide.
