Activity 4.2
“Exploring” with the Initiative Inventory

Before starting “something new,” it’s important to review what already exists and how your district is using existing resources.  This Exploration Stage activity can help delineate how much is already being asked of district staff and determine if the “new” will fit with the “existing.” The NIRN Initiative Inventory Process Tool is available to assist teams with developing a plan for completing the NIRN Initiative Inventory.
