Governance Overview

The Vista Innovation & Design Academy is governed as a site in what we refer to as a "Flattened Hierarchy." VIDA Teachers and Administration work together through two primary teams. These teams are the VIDA Curricular Leads, and the VIDA Magnet Steering Committee. In addition to these teams, we also still maintain School Site Council.

 

Magnet Steering

The Magnet Steering Committee focuses on building the culture of VIDA through our Magnet program. The purpose of this team is to ensure that VIDA is aligned to our Vision, Mission, and that we are supporting our GILLS. This body is responsible for the development of school-wide Design Challenges, management of the Celebrations of Learning, the organization of the Design Expo's, and the on-going development and incorporation of Design Thinking into our professional practices, pedagogy, and student experiences.
