NW Maritime Center, PT schools team to launch maritime studies Port Townsend Schools are embarking on an initiative to overhaul K-12 instruction by aligning student learning along a place-based strategy that strengthens the connection between classroom learning and the community of Port Townsend. Under the Maritime Discovery Schools initiative, teachers, administrators and local non-profit partners are beginning the work to retool curriculum throughout the district, with changes to be implemented beginning in the fall of 2014. “Very soon learning will look dramatically different here,” said Dr. David Engle, Superintendent of Port Townsend Schools. “Imagine learning in a school system where teachers and students weren’t constrained by outdated teaching models or the four walls of their classroom. Imagine what will happen when the rich experiences in this community are used for education.” From exploring the beach and the surrounding forests and streams, to experiences on and under the water, Engle said he believes that Port Townsend itself will become the medium for improving education, and improving education can have positive effects on the financial health of the entire community. CraFting the transForMation The basic idea of the Mari-
At its core, the maritime framework for Port Townsend schools is about connecting learning to the community. Here, students learn a variety of skills working on projects at the NW Maritime Center. time Discovery School initiative was the result of the outreach Engle embarked on when he arrived in 2012. The theme that came out of all those meetings with local businesses, gatherings in living rooms and classrooms and other public forums was that the community was ready to step up and help the school system make a positive change. Engle also saw that while
Port Townsend possessed an abundance of community resources, several demographic indicators depicted a community in trouble: increasing median age, rising levels of poverty, sub-par performance on standardized tests, and declining school enrollment all pointed to a community at risk. He felt that making the schools truly great would both improve the
readiness of the students who learn here and help address the root causes of those indicators. Improved education, he said, could be an economic driver by retaining families already here and attracting new families and companies to move here. This sea change in the schools was one of the reasons that Crawford Nautical School (the Continued on Page 2
Maritime: Joint fundraising drive planned Continued from Page 1 country’s oldest privately owned nautical training school) chose to expand to Port Townsend, and already have brought several weeks of training classes here since starting operations in August. Over the last year Engle worked with Jake Beattie, Executive Director of the Northwest Maritime Center, to craft a strategy to harness the educational potential of Port Townsend’s non-profit and professional community. The two developed the concept in a white paper titled “Maritime Framework” (available on the PT schools website) and then refined and presented the idea to school board members, teachers and local nonprofits. In April, the school board voted unanimously to adopt the paper as the official strategic direction for the district. Maritime is more than boats In this context a ‘maritime framework’ means more than the subjects
more typically associated with boats. Rather than a vocational track, ‘maritime’ is meant to link learning to the context of Port Townsend. “Our community’s culture is defined both naturally and culturally by our relationship to the sea. All throughout history seaports have been places of richness where commerce and ideas are exchanged and new thoughts, products, and people enter into our world. This is true whether you are talking about the spice trade and sailing ships, bringing in iPads from China or travelling by dugout canoe to gather shellfish,” Engle said. At its core, the maritime framework is really about connecting learning to the community. Research indicates that learning through applied experiences is more effective than learning academic concepts in abstraction, and even more effective when those experiences are directly related to a student’s community and blend multiple subject matter.
The 7th grade program at the NWMC was one of the examples of how place-based learning can be effective. For two weeks every year, 7th graders use the NWMC as their campus. Classroom teachers teach alongside maritime instructors and the students learn math through creating navigation plans on actual charts, rowing and navigating on the bay, and then learn about the history of exploration. They build boats, sing sea shanties, tour area businesses to learn about marine trades — all of the learning maps to state standards. This type of powerful experiential learning will be developed across grade levels and school subjects, and with assistance of the partnering non-profits and businesses. The white paper calls out over 30 potential partners that could be included in a better integrated experience, from maritime trade organizations like the Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding, to environmental organizations like the Jefferson Land Trust or the Port Townsend Marine Science Center, to arts organizations like Centrum. “In a community as rich in experiences as Port Townsend, why aren’t we using all of the resources in this community to make our schools truly excellent? Why shouldn’t our schools

NWMC has used our ability to fundraise for the benefit of another organization. It’s really exciting!” The campaign will kick off this fall and is based on raising a large number of small donations and a limited amount of grants and major gifts. “$750,000 is a big number, but per student it’s pretty manageable — just $125 per student a year for five years. We’re looking for donors to sponsor a student’s worth of change,” says Beattie. “This is really an opportunity for people like you and me to vote with our checkbook. If we work together, we can transform our schools and strengthen our community.” Details about the campaign and Maritime Discovery Schools can be found at maritimediscovery.org
Meetings not required to enjoy chamber benefits By Teresa Verraes I don’t know about you, but time has quickly become one of my most valuable resources. There are 24 hours in the day: Sleep = 6 to 8 (often less). Most of the time I’m eating on the run, but try to make a point of preparing something at home and sharing with friends Verraes and family = 1 to 5. How about the time it takes to get yourself ready for the world (varies considerably). Work = 8 to 12 hours... You get my drift! One of the most frequent concerns I hear from our members, non members, potential members and dropped members, goes something like this: “I can’t spare the time and close my shop to come out for Monday lunch.” “I have a family and the mixers happen at dinner time.” “If I have to spend another hour in a meeting I am going to have a melt down.” Have one or more of these thoughts ever crossed
your mind? Well, here is the good news: You don’t have to show up to a single Chamber event to get good value out of your membership!

10 signs you may need new strategic plan Over the last few years, in the throes of the recession, companies have pared down to bare minimums and leaders have been tasked more with getting product out the door than casting their gaze outward. Yet at the same time, no matter what business you’re in, your market has changed. That makes for at least some degree of misfit, and probably missed opportunities. With the recession waning, now may be the time to take that fresh outward look through a strategic lens - to work on the company, rather than in it. But planning can be costly in terms of both time and money. So, it would be nice to feel confident of your need for, and potential benefits of, undertaking the process. Here are some clues that indicate the time has come for a fresh evaluation and a new strategic plan: • When someone asks why you’re in business, you struggle for a good answer. If they ask what you’re especially good at, or what sets you apart from the competition, or what mark you want to leave, you stumble. All of these point to an inadequate understanding of your fundamental role in the markets you serve. • You don’t know where you’ll be in five years - perhaps even a year. You’re stuck in the trenches, too busy putting out fires, too much in a reactive mode, to have a clear sense of what’s around the corner. • You have an idea where you’d like to be, but no idea how to get there. Many leaders can easily cite the obvious they want to grow, to be more profitable, etc. But that doesn’t mean they know what steps to take. • You’re struggling with how to grow your top line. You aren’t hitting revenue goals, but aren’t sure what to do differ-
ently to improve the situation. It may be that you don’t have a good grasp of how your market has changed, why your customers buy (or should buy) from you, how you are unique and different, or where your greatest leverage lies. • Your external message is unclear. Perhaps it’s just fuzzy, or perhaps it’s inconsistent. Either way, it’s hard for people to understand your message or know where you’re coming from. The consequence can be poor alignment of your products or services with the needs
critical mass. You don’t know how to evaluate opportunities. They present themselves regularly, but not all are necessarily the right ones. All that glitters is not necessarily gold. One true value of a strategic plan is that it provides a lens through which to view your changing environment. It is as much about omission as inclusion. • You take too many cues from your competitors. You watch what they do, and then either copy or react to it. That makes you a follower, not a leader. Your pricing decisions, for example, should have more to do with the differentiated value you offer than with what the competition is charging. Every organization faces at least some of these issues at least some of the time. If only one or two are true for you, perhaps you can tackle them individually. But, if the pattern is broader, your most of demands they are supposed ate, how they compete or what cost-effective way to make an impact is with fresh strategic to address. they’re up to.

And, if acted upon over time, it can dynamically usher in the next stage of growth for your organization.
“The greatest value of strategic planning lies in the process. Not that the finished plan isn’t important. It will guide decision making, bring about that important internal alignment and enable you to address all kinds of issues more efficiently and confidently.”

Pretty fall colors indicate fall has arrived and that winter can’t be far behind. Jefferson County encourages people to prepare for power outages and other emergencies by collecting supplies and a grab and go kit.
Prepare for blustery storms and feel secure this winter Some of us march to a different drummer, as the saying goes. Some march rhythmically, others march in place and still some, not at all. The staff and volunteers at Jefferson County Department of Emergency Management all march in place for most of the year — but the cadence picks up a bit when the calendar changes from September to October. We’d like you to join us. There are many things you can do to prepare for winter storms and other emergencies that could occur in Jefferson County. Planning ahead for these potential events is as much about a mindset as it is about getting some extra batteries or storing some water and food. Two-for-one coupons are a great way to begin
getting some emergency foods for your family and . . . don’t forget your pets! Be mindful of the pull dates on packages and make a note to check your emergency supplies twice a year when you change the batteries in your smoke alarms — at the beginning and end of daylight saving time. An ice chest on wheels makes a good GRAB&GO Kit and is a good place to store emergency items. For additional information, visit www.jeffcoeoc.org. A valuable resource for Jefferson County residents is the Map Your Neighborhood (MYN) program. Since the first neighborhood was organized in 2006, the program has grown remarkably under the leadership of Deborah Stinson and now includes approximately
150 organized neighborhoods of varying sizes in the county. The program encourages neighbors to band together during and after an emergency to look out for one another and share needed supplies. If a major event occurred here on the peninsula, we could easily be cut off from the deliverability of needed supplies. Sheltering in place may be our best and only option. To find out if your neighborhood has an MYN group or to start one, email EP@L2020. org. Another source of information about the program can be found at www.emd.wa.gov. Type “MYN” in the search box at the top of the page. You’ve got your marching orders! Share some of your preparedness ideas with us at email@example.com.

build business by letting customers design products By Elaine Jones Large companies have dabbled in customization — Proctor & Gamble once tried offering 1,000 shades of makeup — but it is an area where small companies can really stand out. Could you be building your business by letting the customer participate in creating your product or service? Choosing features, packaging, added services or complementary products or unique sizing? Increasingly businesses are acting as curators of choices for creating products, rather than producing the same item in quantity. Customization can be as simple as being able to add a logo or allowing orders as large or small as the customer wants. It is also the ability to create individualized packages of vitamins, or dictate the finish on a product. It may entail adding accessories or replenishable supplies like plaque-removing biscuits with dog food. Or letting individual customers select the ingredients in their granola purchase.
