We are regularly seeking ideas that operationalize our commitment to our core values ofExcellence, Equity and Efficiency at HDESD. This is YOUR chance to seed an idea on the ThinkUp Platform and inspire others to do the same. We believe in the brilliance of those closest to the work and that means YOU have ideas, thoughts, and solutions worth seeing and sharing. Submit them during the ThinkUp! Challenge from January 23 through February 17, 2023.


“I have never felt more alive as an educator. Bringing an idea through the i4 process was a game changer for me.

I had entrepreneurs challenging my small thinking and the resources to test an idea and learn along the way.

I am a braver, more confident teacher now.”

— Laurie Powers, Teacher
