COVID-19: PS2 Support

Plan Support & Peer Support to navigate the school year

Our PS2: Plan Support & Peer Support service helps you navigate the school year during the pandemic

Despite thoughtful and careful planning over the summer, district leaders understand there are going to be challenges during this school year. Districts will need to be able to respond quickly and effectively.

DMGroup has developed a new service, PS2: Plan Support and Peer Support, to support districts in implementing, validating, and adapting plans and actions throughout the year to ensure students are being supported and learning in any scenario.

Our Approach

PS2 provides districts with a combination of individual and group support to meet district needs.

  • Individual Advisory Workshops – district specific quarterly workshops with one of DMGroup’s consultants to understand unique district needs and act as a dedicated advisor
  • Streamlined Research and Toolkits – packaged resources specific to district area of need
  • Peer Group – cohort of districts working together to problem solve and validate plans and actions throughout the year
  • Learn and Shares – peer group sessions facilitated by DMGroup to share best practices and collaborate
  • Virtual Roundtables – research-based webinars led by DMGroup subject matter experts on topics most pressing to public school district leaders

What will the year look like?

PS2 is structured in phases of work that align with district calendars and corresponding priorities from September 2020 to June 2021.

Phase III - REFLECTIONS AND PLANS FOR FALL 2021
