As the end of the academic year approaches it is time to evaluate and reflect on SchooliP and plan forward into the next academic year and the next review cycle.
Thinking ahead and planning SchooliP will help your organisation identify what you want to achieve from the system and determine which functions are key, so that time can be allocated to completing them. It is also the opportunity to plan for the future and to look at adapting and evolving SchooliP to meet your needs. Out of the evaluation and planning process new opportunities will emerge that deliver better outcomes.
Too often, staff say they are too busy to plan, but if you don’t plan where you want to go, don’t be surprised if you end up somewhere else.
“To Fail to Plan is to Plan to Fail…”
Staff can only realistically manage so many projects at one time, so planning will help guide the direction, allocate the correct resources, including staffing, to make the most sense of the goals. Collaboration on the project will have the most impact, and it puts the organisation in a better position to achieve success.
It is important to set aside quality time to plan in one or two hourly chunks. Preferably this should be away from distractions to allow focus and clear thinking. A series of planned meetings, that are well organised with focused content and the right staff, can make this process painless, maybe even fun.

The leadership team and the Administrator of the SchooliP system have a number of decisions to make regarding setting up SchooliP including how to organise the opening and closing of review periods and which default dates to display in the system etc.
We are here to support this process and offer several options:-
