Our Strategic Response to School Closures
The evolving COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent school closures demanded a need to rapidly and strategically pivot as an organization. Change management requires a myriad of strategies across organizational areas. Paramount within the change process are: the need to set a clear goal for all to work towards, explicitly identify how the organization will reach this goal, and build a formative measurement system to continuously gauge progress allowing continuous learning and organizational improvement. To ensure ACPS is meeting these requirements staff have collaboratively developed a working theory of action and an accompanying system of measurement to align the work of the organization and best allow rapid learning and continuous improvements.
