District of Innovation

"Creativity is thinking up new things. Innovation is doing new things." 
                                                                                           -Theodore Levitt

On October 10, 2016, the SMSD Board of Trustees approved a resolution to explore the opportunity for SMSD to become a District of Innovation (DOI). The Board passed this resolution based on its:

  • Commitment to the success of every student;
  • Practice of supporting quality education and innovation for the benefit of students; and
  • Embracing the belief that an effective decision-making platform surrounded with freedom will assist in exercising local control over the decision-making process.
