ADAPTOVATE is proud to support Pledge 1% and Teach for America (TFA). TFA is a national non-profit organization whose mission is to find, develop, and support a network of leaders, including teachers, to end educational inequity in America. For this Pledge 1% engagement, ADAPTOVATE and TFA ran a design sprint to derivea prototype solution to address declining teach retention rates.
ADAPTOVATE and TFA identified 19 addressable root causes that were driving lower retention rates. An additional 8 root causes were identified, however, were out of scope (i.e., COVID-19 pandemic).
Then, ADAPTOVATE facilitated a TFA-led design sprint over 4 sessions virtually. The design sprint was used to identify the problem, ideate solutions, and test quickly.
As a result of this Pledge 1% engagement with ADAPTOVATE, the TFA staff is now able to review the feedback from prototype testing, improve,and deliver a pilot to be tested with select teachers.
TFA staff will also continue to monitor quantitative and qualitative insights to measure efficacy of the prototype on retention.
Additionally, TFA can consider running design sprints on other areas of opportunity and seek out partnership opportunities with their partners and stakeholders.
