Meet the Schedule Design Team

Design Thinking is a process of building deep empathy to understand problems and then iteratively build solutions. For the past two years, the Design Thinking process has entered into the Breck community in a more deliberate way. Last year, the COVID Design Team led the school through the design process to develop the daily schedule used during the 2020-2021 school year. That schedule was deliberately created with COVID restrictions and hybrid learning in mind. As Breck closed this calendar year, a new Design Team was launched: this time, with the goal of creating a daily schedule that would live beyond COVID and offer a new perspective to daily learning at Breck.

Design Teams allow a cross-section of staff faculty the opportunity to lead new initiatives at Breck. Look for more projects in the very near future!
