Story: The Power of Experimentation

Trying new things can be scary.  That’s why with the Portola Valley School District, 520 team members built Community Buy-in Through Experimentation

PVSD continually struggled to implement new programming, encountering significant pushback from the community and even legal disputes. By using an iterative approach that provided an opportunity for stakeholder input, they were able to design and implement a new master schedule for the district seamlessly.

“When we proposed the final schedule the community embraced it because they understood why we had made certain decisions and they felt like they had been part of the process.”
