Strategic Plans

The District has now undergone a formal Strategic Planning process twice. The original Strategic Plan was developed during the 2007-2008 school year. A diverse team of staff, Board members, parents and community members based its work on Jim Collin's book "Good to Great." They reviewed the District's survey data, assessment data, school improvement plans, and future trends in education. The team worked collaboratively to create a new mission statement and list of beliefs, which captured the spirit of the District and expressed our essential purpose. This plan served as a guide to District endeavors from 2007-2011.

The Strategic Planning process was repeated during the 2011-2012 school year. The second process was similar to the first in that it began with a comprehensive District survey of parents, staff, students and community members. 

The Strategic Planning Team met from February 2012 to May 2012 to develop the new plan that would guide the District through the year 2015. The Team, which again included staff, parents, and Board members, reviewed the components and accomplishments of the past plan, analyzed survey data, and researched 21st century learning-- the skills students need to thrive in the 21st century and evolving global community. The Team identified District strengths and areas for improvement, as well as future opportunities and potential challenges. It renewed its commitment to the District’s mission statement and revised the belief statements. New themes were developed, and action plans were created. The new action plans include a focus on Common Core Standards (Math and English Language Arts), Gifted/Enrichment programming, technology, finances, human resources, supplemental summer programming, SEL, student differentiation, and implementing 21st century skills.

Special thanks go out to all Strategic Planning Team participants for their dedication, thoughtful deliberation, hard work, and vision!
