Disruptive School Change and the Admission Office - Presentation

John Kerney, Head of School (SSAT Board Member), DoI&T Academy/Winchendon School, MA
John "Sean" Duncan, Director of DoI&T Academy, The Winchendon School, MA
David Flynn, Director of Admissions and Financial Aid, The Winchendon School, MA

In the book, Disrupting Class, Clay Christensen focused on the importance of innovation in our schools. But, as we undertake new programs, we struggle to implement significant change within our communities. Twice in eight years, Winchendon has implemented disruptive change. Most recently, we launched the Do Innovation and Transformation (DoI&T) Academy and are expecting that 35-40% of our students will be enrolled full-time in this program in its third year. This presentation discusses the perils and opportunities inherent in guiding our schools through dramatic change, with a specific emphasis on working with the admission office to drive transformation in our schools.
