Fayetteville, NC – The Cumberland County School (CCS) system announces the selection of six elementary schools chosen to be a part of The Innovation Project’s (TIP) Early Learning Network.  In July, TIP launched its Early Learning Network to transform the early learning experience by reimagining school and district approaches to problems of practice.  This collaboration of elementary schools will design and implement innovative strategies to dramatically improve student outcomes.

The Network is funded by a three-year, $982,445 grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation of Battle Creek, Michigan.

“We are thrilled to have six schools from the Cumberland County Schools joining the inaugural cohort of TIP’s Early Learning Network,” said Joe Ableidinger, TIP’s Chief Program Officer and Director of Innovation. “Schools selected for membership in the Network have demonstrated exceptional promise to become leaders in developing innovative, transformative approaches to early learning. We are confident that these schools will be pioneers, serving as models for others throughout North Carolina and nationally.”

The six elementary schools selected to participate are:

Cliffdale Elementary                     Suzanne Owen, Principal
Ed V. Baldwin Elementary          Howard Higgins, Jr., Principal
Ferguson-Easley Elementary     Dr. Mary Hales, Principal
Manchester Elementary              Kailey Hill, Principal
Sherwood Park Elementary        Melvetta Wright, Principal
Teresa C. Berrien Elementary    Dr. Brenda Winfrey-Knox, Principal

“Participation in this Cohort offers our schools a focus and creativity to redesign schooling and learning,” said CCS’ Superintendent Dr. Marvin Connelly, Jr. “We are taking the steps, fostered through inspiration, empowerment, and collaboration, to transform our schools.”
