Learning Environments and Partnerships (LEAP)
The Learning Environments and Partnerships Committee is a standing committee of the ECASD School Board. It was established to “…encourage innovation, which could increase our ability to provide diverse programming and methodologies.” The committee created a three step process for our teachers to have the opportunity to imagine, develop, implement and interpret an educational program which may not be associated with conventional educational programs. Those programs become part of our district’s Innovation Zone.
