Message from Director

Dear Students, Families and Community Members,Todd Sconce photo

As we begin the school year in the Innovation Academy, I am energized and deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of our children. We will accomplish this by setting high academic expectations for all children and providing supportive systems to assure they are met. By addressing school culture, setting high standards for teacher performance, increased academic expectations for all students and engaging the community, the goal of the Innovation Academy that all graduates are college or career ready is supported. It is my hope that all students get involved in our school through athletics, music, drama, student leadership, community volunteerism and school activities and clubs. Working together, we can ensure that the students of the Innovation Academy continue to achieve their highest potential in the classroom, gym, on stage or on the field. 

Your involvement, partnership and support are greatly appreciated during the school year as we work to build and maintain our programs. I am confident that this will be an outstanding school year and look forward to working with the staff and community to continue the Decatur Proud tradition of academic excellence!
