On the other end of this pandemic, new, private learning enterprises, different from anything we’ve seen in the history of American education, will emerge. These reinvented schools will enjoy distinct characteristics that will drive their resilience in the marketplace. Accelerated by the pandemic, we are at the tipping point of an explosion of innovation, one that will most surely recalibrate our strategic and fiscal planning for the future.

Join Ian Symmonds and fellow NCAIS school leaders for a deep dive into the key components of strategy development and financial planning in a new post-pandemic normal.  This four-week, online intensive class has been created and customized as a deep professional development experience specifically for members of NCAIS and SAIS.  

Our online intensive will focus on the following key components of resiliency, strategy development, and fiscal planning:

  • Strategic enrollment management in the new normal
  • Retention strategies for post-COVID new markets and families
  • New delivery systems, price points, and financial models
  • Changing competitive realities 
  • Rethinking assessment and credentialing models
  • Redesigning our use of time, schedule, and facilities
  • Leveraging technology to personalize and expand learning
  • Strategic partnerships to expand school footprint and learning opportunity 

Registered participants in the class will engage in virtual sessions every other week via Zoom.  Our learning experience will extend beyond our scheduled sessions, too, as we participants will engage in weekly online exercises using project management and collaboration software.

Registration Specifics: Our online intensive runs as a cohort, meaning that the same group starts and continues the learning journey together.  We will have some asynchronous exercises in between sessions so that learning extends beyond the scheduled time together. These exercises will be hosted on our secure project management system, Basecamp, so that people can collaborate.

Cost: $1600 NCAIS or SAIS members
