2011 Elizabeth Rohatyn Prize for School Innovation

Are you an innovative school leader? Does your curriculum strike a balance between core academic and 21st century skills? Is your school pioneering new strategies for collaboration and assessment? Would you like additional resources to support your vision? If so, Teaching Matters wants to hear from you.

Beginning March 1, 2011, Teaching Matters will accept nominations for The Elizabeth Rohatyn Prize for School Innovation. The winner of The Rohatyn Prize will receive a one-time award of $15,000 to support, sustain or further an innovative school learning environment, program or practice that has the potential to be replicated by other schools.

Applicants can self-nominate or be nominated by a colleague. Submissions may focus on any of the five categories addressed in Teaching Matters’ Rubric for School Innovation.

The Rohatyn Prize was created to recognize and support the efforts of our principals. Teaching Matters values the work school leaders do and we want to ensure that other educators know about and learn from these successful innovations.

We look forward to announcing the winner in July 2011 at our annual summer Principals' Forum.
