How it Works: The Scheduling for Success Process

DMGroup elementary master scheduling experts will guide you through a collaborative process to create elementary master schedules aligned with district and school goals.

scheduling-for-success-processWe start by understanding current district and school scheduling practices and then work closely with each school to understand any observed strengths and opportunities for improvement. This helps establish a shared understanding of the needs of each school and drives district-level goals and objectives.

While district-level goals and objectives will shape the priorities, we embrace the fact that no two schools have the same walls, students, or staff. This is thoughtfully factored into the schedule creation process to ensure that the specific needs and constraints of each school are addressed while working to support district goals.

What You'll Get: Scheduling for Success Deliverables

At the completion of the scheduling project, each school will have master schedules, homeroom teacher schedules, and specials teacher rotations and schedules. All of these schedules are available online in our cloud-based scheduling software. All schedules follow a common, easy to use standard to support efficient distribution and access to all staff. Our software has been crafted based on best practices in teaching and learning and feedback shared with us from thousands of schools nationwide.
