    Strategic Plan


    In late 2015, we began the work to update the District's Strategic Plan that ended that year. The Superintendent, District Leadership Team (DLT) and a facilitator designed a process, reviewed District data, and identified a goal framework to set the stage for developing the new plan.

    In the spring of 2016, a Strategic Planning Summit was held. A representative group of 100 community members, community leaders, parents, staff, and students met on a Friday evening to develop goals and strategies to achieve those goals.

    Over the summer of 2016, the DLT met to synthesize the input from the Summit and make final recommendations for the goals, strategies and key actions. Six goal areas were identified:

    • Early Learning
    • Whole Child
    • Choice/Flexibility
    • Academic Success
    • Community Engagement
    • Operational/Fiscal Effectiveness

    The School Board revised and provided final comments on the draft plan before it was finalized. Our Strategic Plan is reviewed and renewed annually and as opportunities for improvement emerge.
