Future-Proofing Your Academy: Why an Action Plan is Essential

Are you a teacher or part of a team responsible for an academy? Do you want to maximize the academy experience for your students & team? It's time to make plans for an Action Planning work session with your NAF team! 

Why Action Plan, you ask? Well, it's simple. Planning now means future success. By maximizing resources and opportunities for your students and team, academies with higher fidelity to the NAF model see better student outcomes. And who doesn't want that? 

But it's not just about achieving success - it's about building upon it. By using the current year's successes as a foundation, you can make strategic decisions and leverage the Academy Assessment results to identify areas for improvement. Plus, having an Action Plan in place provides continuity and helps guide your team even during periods of staff or site leadership turnover. 

The Action Planning process is also a critical part of continuous improvement for your academy's success. By regularly reviewing and updating your plan, you can ensure you're always on track to achieve your goals. 

So what are the next steps? First, schedule an Action Planning meeting with your NAF Portfolio Manager soon.

Second, go to your Action Plan in ASH, review your academy's assessment data, identify areas of strength, and identify areas needing further support. And don't forget to add reviewing your Action Plan as a standing agenda item on your academy team meetings.  An Action Planning work session with your NAF team is the perfect way to take your academy to the next level. By following these steps, you'll be well on your way to maximizing the academy experience for your students and team.
