PROBLEM

7th and 8th grade student and families need a way to get accurate information about the Amandla HS experience.

HOW MIGHT WE…

Share information about our high school with students, families, and staff in order to get all stakeholders excited about retaining students in the 8th to 9th grade transition by leveraging our new organization structure, shared space and existing opportunities for parent communication.

SOLUTION

Our big idea is a new communications systems for our high school program to share information and receive information from our 8th grade stakeholders.  It is a process of ensuring that our internal 9th grade prospects have a clear, articulate, and full picture of what our high school program has to offer.
