De-implementation: Making Space to Focus on What Works

October 17, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

The workload of principals has increased over the last two decades and teachers are more stressed and anxious now than they were one year ago at the height of the pandemic (Education Week). Teachers and leaders are at risk of being spread too thin.

In this presentation, Peter DeWitt will focus on de-implementation, which is the abandoning of low value practices (van Bodegom-Vos L.). Tackling the challenge of overwork, he will share the different forms de-implementation can take and when it makes sense to use a formalized process to lessen waste, increase results, and support major school improvement efforts.

By the end of this session participants will be able to:

  • Define de-implementation and low value practices and understand how our focus on control impacts our decision making
  • Differentiate between informal and formal de-implementation.
  • Engage in the process of de-implementation.
