The district is attracting significant philanthropic and community support as it seeks to invest in students and staff to ensure that Ravenswood schools offer a world-class education to all students.

Innovate is supporting Ravenswood in multiple ways, including through our flagship , a year-long leadership development program aimed at supporting school leaders to create and/or lead successful schools, with a particular emphasis on students of color and low-income students.
