Verizon Innovative Learning Schools
In 2017, three SBISD schools were selected as sites for Verizon Innovative Learning Schools (VILS): Northbrook Middle, Spring Woods Middle, and YES Prep Northbrook. VILS is a generous two year investment of $1.6 million towards mobile devices and training to support personalized learning. To enable Anytime, Anywhere Learning, Verizon provides all students with access to mobile learning technology in the classroom and at home. The program engages teachers in professional development sessions to leverage the new technology to assess student data and individualize instruction.
