At the completion of the District Engagement Conference the Strategic Leadership Team and Change NavigationCoordinator organize the district into academic clusters (e.g., a cluster can be one high school and all the middle and elementaryschools that feed into it), a cluster for the central administration staff, and a cluster for all other supporting workunits. They also charter and train a Cluster Design Team for each cluster.

As stated earlier, the unit of change for SUTE is an entire school system rather than individual schoolswithin a system. Although the entire system is the unit of change the SUTE journey is navigated by organizing the system intoacademic clusters, a cluster for the central administration, and a cluster for all nonacademic supporting work units. The academicclusters must include at least one school-based administrator and one teacher from each level of schooling within the cluster (e.g.,in a preK-12th grade cluster there should be one administrator and one teacher from the elementary, middle, and secondary levels ofschooling). This membership formula assures that the entire instructional program within an academic cluster isrepresented.

One cluster is also formed for the central office staff. This cluster includes all the functions housed in thecentral administration unit. Finally, there is cluster formed for the nonacademic supporting work units (e.g., cafeteria, buildingand grounds maintenance, and transportation).

All of these clusters are formed to facilitate the district’s transformation journey. Each cluster has a Cluster Design Team that is trained in the principles of whole-systemchange. Each team guides the SUTE transformation journey within its respective cluster. The daily work of all the Cluster Design Teamswill be coordinated by the Change Navigation Coordinator. The Strategic Leadership Team provides broad strategic oversight of theteams and the coordinator.

Step 1: Redesign the Entire School District

Navigating whole-system change requires simultaneous improvements along three paths:

  • Path 1: Improve the district’s relationship with its external environment, which improves relationships with key externalstakeholders.
  • Path 2: Improve the district’s core and supporting work processes (core work is teaching and learning; supporting workincludes secretarial work, administrative work, cafeteria work, building maintenance work, and so on).
  • Path 3: Improve the district’s internal social infrastructure (which includes organization design, governance, policies,organization culture, reward systems, job descriptions, communication, and so on.)

Near the beginning of Step 1, the Cluster Design Teams collaborate with the Change Navigation Coordinator toorganize their respective clusters to begin the transformation journey. They do this by chartering Site Design Teams within eachschool building inside the academic clusters, within the central office cluster, and within the supporting work unit cluster. TheseSite Design Teams are staffed with highly regarded faculty and staff who do the daily work of teaching children, managing theiradministrative units, or providing support services. The people on these teams will be the ones who create innovative and powerfulideas for improving their building or work unit’s 1) relationships with the external environment; 2) work processes; and 3) internalsocial infrastructure. This is an important principle because the field of systemic change believes that the people who actually dothe work are the people best qualified to improve it (Emery, 1977; Emery, 2006; Emery&Purser, 1996; Weisbord, 2004).

can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
Jeffrey Reply
sure. what is your question?
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
I got X =-6
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?

or infinite solutions?
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world

At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
