Mine for next year is building on/expanding my emergency response plan to include creating a small team (3-4 people) to help me respond to a mass casualty event in case of one.

Of course, that one is lofty and have take me more than a year...

But simpler previous one has been reduce lost instruction compared to previous year. I never say reduce # of visits because I can't control who writes a nurse's pass for student no matter how much education I give staff.
