Innovation schools are catching on
New schools slated for Gloucester, Haverhill, Lynn, Malden, and Somerville
There are 18 innovation schools in the state, and in February, Governor Deval Patrick announced $281,000 in planning grants to 29 schools that want to attain the innovation status. Five of those planned schools are in Gloucester, Haverhill, Lynn, Malden and Somerville. The schools were created two years ago to give educators new flexibility inside the classroom.
