Innovation of Organizational Systems
Innovative Organizational Systems are shaped by Student Interest and need while reflecting Pathways to future success.
The Office of Innovation at Reynoldsburg City School District designs innovative organizational systems to make a substantial impact on the students learning experience. To accomplish this Reynoldsburg City School District uses student interests and passions to explore k-12 career focused pathways culminating in four 9-12 academies that give students focused opportunities while comprehensively preparing them for college, career and life. Furthermore, K-12 STEM schools engage and refine new innovative practices that can be deployed throughout the district thus impacting the greatest number of students.
 
We need to build change into our systems and let these systems evolve as circumstances change. Change is inevitable, but we need to do a better job of dealing with it, because when we start building huge gleaming monoliths, I think we start getting into trouble.
