Research Partners

Lab Research School

CAST Network schools are in a research partnership with UTSA’s Urban Education Institute. The partnership enhances our schools’ ability to act as laboratories for innovation and continuous improvement. The Urban Education Institute’s Lab Research Schools are modeled after the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching’s Networked Improvement Communities, or NICs.

Because CAST Schools are partnership schools with multiple public school districts, our partner districts have an opportunity to test ideas and replicate or scale them.
