At Relay, we believe that all children — regardless of income, creed, race, gender or other distinction — deserve an equal chance to learn and to lead lives full of choice and opportunity. This belief is embodied through a bold statement on our website: “Education Creates Freedom.”
At too many school districts, professional development misses the mark. Teachers take the same courses year in and year out, without much thought to either their individual areas for growth or the specific needs of the students they serve.
These are lost opportunities. If we want teachers to bring their best game to their students, then we need to bring our best game to their professional development (PD).
Last weekend more than 200 school leaders—including principals, principal fellows, superintendents, department chairs, and curriculum coordinators—traveled to New York City to participate in the National Principals Academy Fellowship (NPAF) March intersession.
NEWARK, NJ– March 3, 2015 – Newark Public Schools (NPS) today announced a partnership with the Relay Graduate School of Education (GSE) naming it a district-approved program.

The Relay Memphis site will be led by Founding Dean Michelle Armstrong, a lifelong member of the Memphis community and former teacher and principal in the city’s public schools. Dean Armstrong joins Relay from Insight Education Group, where she helped to lead Shelby County Schools’ teacher effectiveness training for school leaders and instructional coaches.
We hope you like the new Relay.edu. We’ve sought to improve the experience for both web and mobile visitors to this site, while also providing richer and more relevant information for our applicants, partners, donors and others interested in our mission.
In the coming weeks and months, we’ll be implementing additional improvements. We’re particularly excited about rolling out an improved navigation bar, scheduled to launch in early 2015, that will help students, faculty, and staff more quickly navigate to key Relay sites directly from this site.
Relay is thrilled to celebrate the release of a new, free iOS math game for students called Impoppable.
Impoppable is a math game designed for kids ages 8-12 that builds skills including automaticity and flexibility with key facts. The user pops bubbles by creating multiplication and division equations. It’s simple, highly addictive—just ask the Relay staff members who can’t put it down—and fun!
