Minnesota charter authorizer issues call for innovative school proposals

Innovative Quality Schools, a Minnesota charter school authorizer, has again this year issued a Request for Proposals to start new chartered schools in Minnesota.

Highest priority will be given to proposals which (a) propose new and innovative models of school and schooling; or (b) draw from a demonstrated research base. IQS recognizes the need to both try new things, and to replicate what's been shown to work.

IQS provides an interesting example of a new breed of "proactive authorizer" -- actively seeking out proposals for high quality schools.

Letters of intent should be submitted by January 31, 2014. Application deadline is March 1, 2014. Read more about the RFP.
