Team Action Planning Process (TAPP)
A key feature of the APPLE project is the development of a Team Action Plan by each school district team using the Team Action Planning Process (TAPP). TAPP, a consensus-driven process, leads each team through a facilitated process to create a vision, action steps and timelines. The TAPP is a method of exploring group beliefs and goals before choosing a primary event or activity to carry out. Beginning with the identification of a common goal, team members choose attainable target objectives and determine the process most likely to successfully attract collaborators and supporters. To honor the individual “personalities” of each team, TAPP is adaptable and able to be customized to meet the needs of the Team. Each team is assigned a faculty facilitator (with access to all faculty and staff as requested) to guide the Team to the completion of its unique plan.
