7 Seattle schools apply to use “creative approach”

Seven Seattle schools are applying to become Seattle Public Schools’ first “creative approach” schools which, similar to charter schools in other states, will be allowed significant flexibility to pursue innovative approaches to learning.

The seven schools are: Cleveland High, Denny International Middle School, Hawthorne Elementary, Nova High, Queen Anne Elementary, Thornton Creek Elementary and the Seattle World School.

If chosen, the schools can receive waivers from district or union policies.

Some of the seven schools already have innovative programs, but want to add to them. Others want to try new approaches.

A few examples: Nova would like to add seventh- and eighth-graders to its school. Hawthorne Elementary wants to focus on science, technology, engineering, math, and art.

All the proposals must not add costs to the school district, and 80 percent of the staff had to agree to submit an application.
Final applications are due Nov. 30.
