So what does this mean for us. It is the act of looking at this opportunity differently. This is a chance to embrace the notion of redesign – or reinvention – rather than trying to reform a system that we know does not support the results we need. And this is a chance to do it together, as a community.And so this is the context in which BB and MZ work and were invited to participate in.Bring the community together around this opportunity with an objective to produce a viable plan that would be implemented beginning July 1, 2012. This plan would embrace globally researched-based best practices; incorporate the unique assets of this community and our schools; and engage the entire community – including students – both in planning and implementation.
In this planning phase, we will utilize (as you learned on 9/29) the tool and methodology of the design thinking process, engaging both community and students in all aspects of planning (and implementation). Recognizing always, that we are building the plane while flying it and the emotions and anxiety caused by this must also be paid attention to.
Tonight’s focus along this timeline is really on the first areas: RDT and empahy.RDT TEAM: making sure we have the right peopleat the tableCommitted to the project and agree to be an active participantHave knowledge, skills, experience with schools, in schools, with students, about ed redesign, of communityAgree to ground rulesWe expect to have a core team although others will come in and outFor those of you who haven’t talked with BB/MZ about joining, if you are interested please come and find us afterwards.Process is open and inclusive, but there is a need for consistency and commitment; there are multiple ways for you to get involved with usEMPATHY: gather data through a variety of meansObservations from storiesEngaging networks you are associated with and sharing with the rest o the RDTImmersing in “other data”: demographics, program inventory by school, best practices and trends globally, historical data by school/SLC work at Castle
in reality we expect to move back and forth through these phases over the next 3 months. When we reconvene in November, December and January, we’ll continually circle through the acts of gaining knowledge and information, identifying points of view, brainstorming; and then, modifying and refining as subject matter experts “scrub” the ideas within current constraints and conditions. This is to keep it as creative, but as realistic and feasible as possible.
Looking at all the different slices of a community as they impact students – but also in relation to the scale at which they impact students, directly, in the 96744 community or indirectly through systemic/state-wide influence.
What we came up with initially, was a visual that looked like this: we acknowledge this isn’t complete and will continue to evolve throughout the project, but it gives us a way to identify who is – and isn’t – at the table.We used that initial map to serve as the basis for which we invited people to the 9/29 briefing, which was an introduction to the community about the project. We also knew that because of the tight timeline, we wouldn’t reach everyone and thus that is where we have been relying on the networks you walk into the room with, to help us. Since that last meeting we’ve held nearly 100 hours worth of meetings with stakeholders that you had referred us to in that initial meeting, and expect to continue to do so (but hopefully taper off as we reach those we need to reach).
This brings us to the ground rules. Before we can do the work together, we should agree on how we will do the work together. We’ve outlined some key factors that we believe are important to create the right conditions for this important work to occur.We can’t spend the time on creating it like we’d want and I think we all agree that there are some common elements we’d all agree to, so we’ve gone ahead and listed them for you as a start.What we’d like from you, is to take a look at the list and see what’s missing, what would you like to add.
Before I turn it over to Bernice, I’d like to leave you with this. I attended a conference in Boston and heard the superintendent of the Boston Public School system speak. And as she stated the quote above (I replaced her original word, reform, with redesign), she spoke of examples and instances that when the stakeholders – people like us – came together with a common focus and commitment that this is for our students, they started to experience the successes they wanted to see. And despite all the costs, the constraints, the conditions, the concerns the fear of change and the unknown – hope and opportunity emerged when they were willing to put those differences aside for the sake of our children.We know we must change and we also know that we don’t want to. At some level for all of us, there is fear, anxiety, pain. And for us engaging in this change, we know that we too, will have to change as much as the next person.In short, they came together as a community, much like we are now, to do this important work together. There are stories all over the country and the world – Colorado and Boston, Ontario and Finland – where these successes are popping up, where community and schools have partnered to co-create an alternative future. There is no uniform answer, (yet), but it is possible.We cannot do this without everyone at the table. So as we move forward, let’s remember that this is about all of our children – not just the ones that may attend a particular school that you’re affiliated with. We as a community are responsible for virtually the same body of children, no matter what part of the castle complex they attend, what grade level, where they live in the 96744 zip code. This is our issue, and as a community we must come together to address it. Let’s come together to make this complex one with great schools, that parents choose to send their children to.
