Innovation Lab Network

The Council of Chief State School Officers Innovation Lab Network engages schools, districts, and state education agencies working to identify new designs for public education that empower each individual student to thrive as a productive learner, worker, and citizen. CCSSO facilitates this network of states, which includes California, Colorado, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin, to support programmatic, policy, and structure design work within each participating state and across the network.  The network is a key element of CCSSO’s overall commitment to "Next Generation Learning."

The Fund for Transforming Education
The Fund for Transforming Education  The Fund for Transforming Education exists to provide a connection between those that are willing to be involved in meaningful ways to truly change education and those who can make those changes happen. As an independent 501c3, The Fund works outside the existing education system to find innovative tools and techniques to ensure that Kentucky students have greater success, cooperates with current leadership in the education community to ensure that the methods identified are practical and ensures all applicable parties are present in this work to lead the implementation of these valuable solutions.
Center for Innovation in Education
Center for Innovation in Education at the University of Kentucky contributes to the national education reform agenda with a focus on ensuring more states are adopting and implementing a standard definition of college and career readiness that embodies “deeper learning” outcomes, implementing meaningful measures of those outcomes, and holding all levels of the system accountable for results.
At the 1996 National Education Summit a bipartisan group of governors and corporate leaders decided to create and lead an organization dedicated to supporting standards-based education reform efforts across the states. To do so, they formed Achieve as an independent, bi-partisan, non-profit education reform organization. To this day, Achieve remains the only education reform organization led by a Board of Directors of governors and business leaders. This unique perspective has enabled Achieve to set a bold and visionary agenda over the past 15 years, leading Education Week in 2006 to rank Achieve as one of the most influential education policy organizations in the nation.
