Five Fox Chapel Area High School students were accepted into the League of Innovative Students. The students are senior Shriya Krishnamurthy; sophomores Laila Golla, Joseph Shin and Niko Vavpetic; and freshman Nadre Digbohou. The League of Innovative Students is part of the Digital Promise League of Innovative Schools, an organization made up of school districts that promote innovation in education.

A total of 30 students from high schools from across the nation are participants in this year’s League of Innovative Students and were selected by an application process. The aim of the program is to allow students to develop leadership, problem-solving and storytelling skills. The students will participate in a design process project from January to June 2024 where they will work with representatives from Digital Promise’s Center for Inclusive Innovation, as well as with other students to design projects that will focus on innovation in education. The inclusive innovation model amplifies voices who have been underrepresented in education to solve education challenges in partnership with school districts.

The goal of the League of Innovative Schools is to create a school environment that achieves equitable outcomes for all students and is a national network of school districts that connects and supports the most forward-thinking leaders in education. By collaborating on shared priorities, League members – including superintendents and district leaders – spearhead innovative learning and leadership practices to achieve equitable outcomes for every student.
