Planning for Implementation
Successful implementation is complex work. Planning requires an understanding of the characteristics of successful implementation, coherence among plans and priorities, and the intentional effort to plan for impact based on your outcome.
CASS has developed a plan to support members with implementation of the Professional Practice Standard. The plan includes a focus on building members’ capacity as well as sharing strategies and approaches to support implementation of the professional practice standards in your school authority. To develop the plan, CASS made use of A Guide to Support Implementation: Essential Conditions developed by education stakeholders in Alberta. A planning template for your use is included here, as well as a sample of CASS’s plan to support implementation.
Additional implementation planning tools are available from the Alberta Regional Professional Development Consortia (ARPDC) site at http://essentialconditions.ca/
Implementation only happens when capacity exists
CASS exists to build and support its members’ capacity. Developing a comprehensive professional learning plan has the potential to build greater capacity. CASS made use of A Guide to Comprehensive Professional Development Planning to create a professional learning plan. A planning template for your use is included here, as well as CASS plans to support members capacity.
