Hold’em is an ERS tool that’s helped more than 10,000 education leaders better understand the kind of trade-offs that are possible to improve districts and schools while staying within budget constraints. We’ve facilitated live sessions all over the country with audiences including district leadership teams, union leaders, foundation leaders, and more. Up until now, the online tool has been focused exclusively on district-level activity.
The new Budget Hold’em for Schools allows school leaders to be creative, suspend disbelief, and create a winning hand of school design strategies. You can play Budget Hold’em on your own or with your team as a visioning exercise that integrates the budget process with school planning.
