WHAT ARE PARTNER NETWORKS?
Partner networks are a group of schools led by an instructional visionary who creates an innovative school model and implements instructional systems that lead to highly-effective schools. All of our networks share the same four qualities:
GATES & CAMERON ELEMENTARY NETWORK
The Gates-Cameron Network focuses on promoting student growth and success through a laser-like focus on instructional leadership and data analysis. To build a shared vision of instructional excellence with the community, network leaders routinely conference with students and families to celebrate progress and identify areas for continued improvement. School Innovation Collaborative serves as the in-district charter partner for Gates Elementary and the support partner for network initiatives at Cameron Elementary. The network is led by Network Director, Sonya Mora.
LAMAR ELEM. & BOWDEN ACADEMY NETWORK
The Lamar-Bowden Network focuses on providing rigorous and engaging instruction while supporting an intentional development of the whole child. To promote student growth, engagement and agency, the network incorporates a dual-language pathway and project-based learning opportunities. School Innovation Collaborative serves as the in-district charter partner for Lamar Elementary and Bowden Academy. The network is led by Network Director, Brian Sparks.
RURAL EXCELLENCE NETWORK
The Rural Excellence Network provides better outcomes for ALL students through social-emotional learning, a personalized approach, performing arts (Benavides) and STEM (Falfurrias). School Innovation Collaborative serves as the in-district charter partner for Benavides Performing Arts Academy and Falfurrias Innovation Academy. The network is supported by School Leader, Sandra Castillo.
