Yesterday I shared with you that I was facilitating a group of school leaders and that we had two hours to come up with an actionable step towards a system of providing more support for students who need it. Through the SAC process, we developed an actionable plan in ninety minutes!
That sounds impressive, but what if I told you that all we did was decide that we needed more information?
Ninety minutes to decide that we needed more information? Was it wasted time?
No, because here is what else happened:
Identifying missing information is a key benefit of the SAC process. Without digging into symptoms to identify the real problem, we are likely to make assumptions without having all of the knowledge we need. By taking more time on the front end, we save time and resources by not wasting them on doing the wrong thing!
Do good and be well,
