Optimize the Efforts of Your Reopening Task Force

Every school must create a Reopening Task Force to make decisions and handle operations related to reopening. The Reopening Task Force must develop a plan for reopening, implement that plan, and maintain and revise the plan as needed.

This program helps you:

  • Identify who should be on your Reopening Task Force and their key responsibilities
  • Create an executable project management approach to campus re-population
  • Track your progress so you know what to do next
  • Support and train your staff and faculty on new approaches to make your reopening efforts as streamlined as possible

Be More Prepared, Even Through Uncertainty

This program helps leaders become more prepared in three specific focus areas: 1) Your Reopening Task Force, 2) Health, Safety & Wellbeing of your school community, and 3) Your School’s Operations & Logistics.

Here’s just a few ways our team of medical and facilities experts will help you become more prepared over the next 90 days:

  • Learn how to implement screening and testing, personal protection, and protective measures
  • Determine what supplies and equipment are actually needed
  • Establish effective cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfection processes
  • Learn how to create an efficient food service processes
  • Create a mission-driven student experience, no matter how you deliver it


The work throughout this series is designed to effectively and efficiently guide independent school leaders through the complexities of reopening planning.

Adrianna Bravo, MD

Your Reopening Plan Will Be a Process, Not an Event

Think about your reopening process as a dimmer switch instead of a light switch. Rather than simply switching all the lights back on and opening, your plan will need intervention, flexibility, and the ability to operate at various levels depending on local, regional, and national impact.

The plan you develop must be flexible. Your school should be ready to operate at different levels and have multiple means of operation for each scenario.

You'll learn how to:

  • Scale your plan accordingly with recommendations that reflect the changing landscape of the current crisis
  • Adjust your operations based on the most up-to-date information
  • Clearly communicate your approach to your school community with confidence
