A-Team Process


Outlined below are the five phases of Alignment Rockford's process for team work. 


1. Solution Design – In response to an unmet student need, the team conducts research and creates a detailed plan to implement a pilot project that includes measures of effectiveness.

2. Community Engagement – Through an invitation to participate, community organizations are asked to join in the implementation of pilot programs.

3. Implementation and Evaluation – Communications between pilot program agencies and the A-team ensures implementation fidelity and accountability. Effectiveness is regularly evaluated.

4. Scaling Up – Based on early success, the pilot is extended beyond the original scope.

5. Ownership – Once measured to be effective on a large scale, the program becomes integrated within the District 205 structure.
