How might we?:

improve morale during challenging economic times?


Describe the prototype(s) your Department/Branch will focus on. Get creative. Be sure to describe the various approaches staff will take, what you will keep your eye on and how staff plan to document their results.

What will you try?

Support work-life balance by encouraging and supporting staff to send and respond to emails not in evenings and weekends. Fits within existing Teacher’s Digital Presence Admin Procedure (AP143). A number of other jurisdictions in Alberta have undertaken this initiative. Develop AP with the assistance of the Admin Procedure Advisory Committee then supporting communications tools.

What will you keep your eye on; what will occur that will give you insight?

If people believe this is a support or not. If we get any feedback from families. If we are able to manage emergent issues under this campaign.

How will you document your results?

See if we are able to develop staff and parent communication resources to explain the why and how emails will be managed.
