    You're Invited! The Innovation Engine is an opportunity for funding through an application process.

This is your Invitation to Innovation.

    Eligible applicants include principals of neighborhood schools that have not previously received funding through OTI. Innovation schools, Transformation schools, and wall-to-wall Magnet schools are not eligible for funding. Neighborhood schools with Magnet or other application-based programs may apply for an initiative that will support their general student body.

    If you are unsure of your school's eligibility, please reach out to Angie Gaylord, Deputy Chief of Transformation and Innovation agaylord@dallasisd.org.
