Three exemplary schools reveal the shape of things to come

2002 Awards Winner recognized by Education Innovator; a US Department of Education, Office of Innovation and Improvement monthly newsletter

From Chris Hazleton @ Harbor City to Randy Fielding:
Our theater project was featured in Today’s issue of the Education Innovator; a US Department of Education, Office of Innovation and Improvement monthly newsletter that communicates innovative practices in education. They showcased 2 projects from the Minnesota Grant which is flattering to both the people behind the projects and the uniqueness of the Minnesota grant and it’s administrators. So today schools and districts across the country are reading about our little school and this great theater project – pretty cool if you stop to think about it.

Thanks for all of your hard work and support.
