More Systems Redesign Offerings
Districts spend a good deal of money on the software, hardware and human support to operate a variety of databases—from their Student Information System to accounting applications. Despite this level of investment, most districts end up with systems that are less than ideal and cost more than necessary. District leaders must establish priorities, make cuts and reduce inefficiencies, all the while continuing to make academic progress. Pivot’s Data SWAT Team can provide direct, targeted support for school districts as they upgrade their legacy systems and satisy the need for timely, accurate and accessible information systems. Pivot Learning Partners will audit the district’s data system and make recommendations about both potential cost savings and improved outputs.
Project management is planning for the expected; change management is dealing with the unexpected. Many well- designed change initiatives fail because key stakeholders did not build an effective implementation infrastructure. Pivot’s approach to project management builds the processes and skill sets to develop goals, strategies, milestones and deliverables, using technology tools to monitor progress toward a successful implementation.
For districts struggling to provide high-quality education, especially in a time of scarce funding, taking into account the opinions and needs of communities and families is important. Listening Campaigns give stakeholder groups the opportunity to communicate what they need so that change initiatives implemented by the district can be truly effective. Pivot can provide a full service strategic community engagement package that includes planning and implementing a campaign and building the systems to regularly incorporate community feedback into strategic initiatives.
