District of Innovation
"Creativity is thinking up new things. Innovation is doing new things."
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.
