Spring Lake Park Schools is a vibrant school community serving about 6,100 students from the suburbs of Blaine, Fridley and Spring Lake Park, in the northern Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area. Our district purpose – “High expectations, high achievement for all. No excuses” – provides our focus to meet the unique and varied needs of each student.
Spring Lake Park Schools is known for creating a culture of innovation, creativity and design thinking.
We are working to create a system – a culture with a methodology and set of processes – where teachers and staff have the freedom and flexibility to try something different.
Why is this important? It’s not only about trying something different or doing something new. It’s about increasing student engagement and learning by continually enhancing the work we ask students to do. It’s about enriching our relationships with families and our community, and how they experience our schools and systems. It’s about how teachers and staff continually improve their practice by implementing ideas and then refining those ideas as they assess effectiveness. And it’s about how our teachers and staff learn from one another and bring successful practices to scale so all students can benefit.
Innovation is more than an idea in Spring Lake Park Schools. We provide our teachers and staff with the processes and tools they need to turn their ideas into meaningful innovations to improve learning for students.
