But we don't stop there! Is your program losing students? We tackle this head-on, emphasizing the importance of reviewing enrollment numbers and addressing any hurdles causing students to leave. Jay talks about the need to touch base with program providers, review the curriculum, and even plan for weather-related disruptions. We underscore the importance of reflecting on the year's highs and lows with your team and collecting feedback from the students. And yes, we've got goals - setting them for the next part of the school year, that is. Stay tuned for an announcement about an upcoming workshop for more insights on effective planning.
