Implementation at your School
How schools Practically Implement Guidelines
1. Working with Staff
Some schools have decided to workshop their draft COVID-19 SOP with staff. They then divided into task teams to tackle different aspects of the work required to implement the SOP.
ATS Consulting (ATS) drafted a Presentation and a Guideline to this effect, and Aggeneys International Academy(AIA) followed a similar approach.
