The Pandemic and the Pivot

Charlie Jahnigen

Sycamore Community Schools is a 5,600-student school district currently undergoing a $130 million master plan that will see four new schools constructed or renovated by 2023.  Design was underway when COVID-19 hit—and threatened to derail our carefully constructed plans and community promises. Instead of falling victim to the pandemic, our team pivoted. Plans moved forward according to schedule and the project, which broke ground in spring 2021, is on time and on budget.

With our clients at Sycamore Community Schools, we were invited to share this perspective at EDspaces. Our presentation highlights how partnership, collaboration and community buy-in can not only be achieved but succeed in a new reality. Click here to download a copy of our presentation.
