We will begin to scale our program by adding capacity within our team and conducting an environmental scan of the provincial education system, including an analysis of strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats that might impact our goals. We will identify both potential champions and laggards at the provincial, district, and school levels, and undertake targeted outreach to build relationships with these key stakeholders. Simultaneously, we will work with others to build political and administrative support at the provincial and district levels for SOGI policy and implementation, as well as the valuable training that Out in Schools provides.
With the support of our champions, we will strategically participate in professional development days for teachers and support staff, equipping them with the tools and knowledge necessary to communicate change within their schools. While we currently reach teachers and support staff incidentally as part of our presentations within schools, scaling up will allow us to implement our program more strategically and at the network level across school districts.
As we are working to encourage policy and curriculum improvements at the provincial and district levels, we will concurrently support new champions for these changes at the school level by strategically focusing the location of our presentations on districts that have not yet implemented SOGI policies and that we have assessed to have the greatest possibility for change.
