This post from my LinkedIn was inspired by a conversation that I was having with two school planners yesterday. They were asking “how do we plan when our base year is the problem? There are so many kids missing that I don’t know how to account for that.” We talked through how she would deal with this but the answer I have for her may not be the same for you.
The impact of COVID and recovery of your district are not going to be the same for everyone. A “one-size-fits-all” approach will not cut it this year.
All the data, and the anecdotal information, points to socio-economic factors playing a big part in people’s decision making around COVID and what recovery looks like.
Give me or Lorne Woods a call or join us in our webinar next week if you would like to talk about this more.
