How does the iZone support schools?

iZone guides schools as they design new personalized learning models. Based on your school’s needs, iZone provides training, professional expertise, policy support and community events that support your work.

How can I apply to be an iZone school?

There are a couple of entry points for a school to be a part of iZone.  One entry point is through iLearnNYC, a group of schools within iZone that aims to meet the needs of individual students through blended learning.  Stay tuned for details on the application process through our website.  Another entry point is through School Challenges, open calls for schools to join our community in designing and scaling innovative solutions to current problems in schools.  Schools can also participate in Innovation Exchange (iX) events to meet like-minded educators, work with edtech developers, and more.

Which schools are eligible to be a part of iZone?

All NYC schools are eligible to apply to be a part of iZone.  Selection for programs, such as iLearnNYC and School Challenges, is based primarily on the school’s vision and commitment to personalizing learning. For some initiatives, other restrictions may apply and will be clearly indicated on our resources and applications.
