OD assignment for Valley High School

In looking at the SLC implementation at Valley High School within the context of the larger organization...key concepts:
Approaches that will be helpful for me in doing this OD are:
Appreciative Inquiry
Force Field Analysis (Lewin)
Internal vs. External demands/effects

Problems observed and/or discussed at VHS:
Communication (administrators and directives given to SLCs)
Buy-In (words and actions do not match)
Conflict within members of the group
No data at outset (what will "results" be compared to?)

The above were observed within the SLCs AND are a reflection of the culture of the larger org (the school itself)
