We envision a future where student differences are not seen as problems that need accommodation, but rather inspire the redesign of our education system.
We partner with public and private sector leaders to build policy and investment agendas that purposefully include students with disabilities and improve outcomes for all students and families.
We work with leaders and organizations to create effective, inclusive approaches to ensure their goals, programs and initiatives embrace students with disabilities.
We use our experience working in next generation policy within states across the nation to help our partners explore new strategies to support family and school efforts to meet the existing and emerging needs of students.
Our fundamental belief is that the traditional one-size fits all system of education is not working. Both our clients and the students they serve deserve customized solutions to achieve their goals
Education policy and funding formulas are inherently complex, particularly when it comes to special education. We partner with private and public sector leaders to build policy and investment agendas that purposefully include students with disabilities and improve outcomes for all students and families.
At Innovative Strategies, we have the skills and experience to solve problems and achieve results. Our services include supporting our clients in the development and implementation of:
Agenda and Goal Setting
State Plans and Federal Waivers
Funding Formula Revisions
Data-driven Reports, Analysis and Issue Papers
Public Presentations and Testimony
Issue Based Advocacy and Strategy
Our clients are leaders who wish to improve students’ lives through education policy. These leaders are committed to equity and understand that students with disabilities have been historically disadvantaged. Whether a policymaker, agency head, non-profit leader or grant maker, our clients influence state and federal policy and how public dollars get spent.
We connect our clients to the latest and best approaches on education policy, particularly special education. We help them identify and develop custom and inclusive solutions so they can take steps to make real and lasting change for all students and their families.
