What's a Strategic Plan - Why Are We Doing It?

A strategic plan is a crucial part of an organization's ongoing efforts for improvement, guiding its direction through a review of the organization's current standing and envisioning future goals. This plan will be developed by collecting feedback from school district staff,  students, families, and community members via in-person and online listening sessions, and includes several key elements:

  • Clear and detailed statements outlining the desired outcomes for students, staff, families, the community, and the district.
  • Specific actions outlining the steps taken to achieve objectives.
  • Data collection and analysis methods to evaluate progress.
  • Established standards that serve as benchmarks to measure progress toward reaching goals.
