Become a Leader in
Educational Data with
the InnoBeta program

Free for a year! Build data dashboards unique to your school with the help of our team

More than ever before, educators have access to invaluable data insights to help them make informed decisions about instruction delivery, accessibility, and overall operations. Despite this, many school leaders lack the knowledge and skills to effectively leverage technology and data analytics into their strategies—leaving them unequipped to keep up with today’s fast-evolving educational landscape, and putting their institutions at a competitive disadvantage.

At Innovare, we’ve designed a solution.

Geared towards traditional public school districts and charter networks, our 16-week InnoBeta program is designed to empower leaders with the skills, tools, and knowledge needed to transform student outcomes. The program combines practical exercises, your data, and industry-leading mentorship to help you build confidence in using technology and data—and effectively lead your organization to success.

The best part? All participants get onboarded with Inno™, a world-leading educational data dashboard, plus free use of the tool for one whole year!
