Key Highlights Include:
- The importance of engaging all stakeholders (students, staff, families, community members) in the planning process to get buy-in
- Being flexible - adjusting plans as needed based on feedback loops and data, not rigidly sticking to the original plan
- Using metrics to track progress and measure success of implementation
- Building leadership capacity by providing professional development so leaders can carry the implementation message
- Creating growth opportunities (e.g. micro-credentials) for staff to support the vision and implementation
- Allowing some "messiness" and risk-taking in trying new things rather than demanding perfect implementation
