· Teams must have 3-5 members and must include at least one active teacher. Other key stakeholders (e.g. NBCT, district superintendent or designee, retired teachers, graduate student, parent, student, community members, school and government officials) are encouraged.
All submitted ideas must:

Submitted ideas highlighting innovative ideas to meet the needs of diverse populations of students are particularly invited. For example, ideas could - though are not required to – address areas like:
· Instructional practice in fields such as career and technical education instruction, STEM or STEAM, world language development, or programs to address social-emotional needs;
· Instructional delivery and creative partnering such as school/business collaboration on career readiness, school/college dual enrollment or virtual schooling.
· Management and leadership structures such as new professional learning models, non-traditional scheduling, cross-curricular instruction, or distributed leadership efforts.
